About the 2011 AGDA Poster Annual
The theme for the 2011 AGDA Poster Annual is "Inspired by Music". Entrants are invited to be inspired and interpret this theme however they wish. Music is perhaps the oldest of humanity's creative endeavours. It is both an art form as well as a type of communication. The world over music is a source of entertainment, celebration, worship and expression. The diversity of music reflects the soul of the world and binds us all. We all experience music at emotional and cultural levels. It offers us our finest moments and records our trials and our joys. This is the power that we hope you can capture.
