Are you a graphic designer and/or possess some semblance of talent?

Yes? Good.

Now that we've established your artsy side, let me draw (yes this is a pun) your attention to a poster competition that's part of the Beirut Design Week. Summed up, all you have to do is design a poster predicting how Beirut will look like in 2090, using any artistic medium that you fancy.

Are we the next Dubai? Do we revert to camel-riding? What about global warming? Technological advancements? Are there flying cars? The possibilities are endless. Just for kicks, check out BuzzFeed's post "Depictions Of The Year 2000 From The 1900's", and see if you can get any ideas. It's pretty brilliant.

You've got till May 30 to submit your poster, which means you've got plenty of time to come up with something genius. And if you need motivation, the winner receives $500 from the MENA Design Research Center. All for a poster design.

So what are you waiting for? Start creating.
