Mars is the most Earth-like planet in the solar system; and the only one where humans have conceived setting up colonies in the near future. A human mission to Mars has been the subject of science fiction and aerospace engineer-since 20th century. Private companies and government agencies like SpaceX and NASA, developing this infrastructure, are set to make this long sought-after human dream come true, possibly by the end of 2030. Chances are, within the next thirty years, a few hundred fortunate Earthlings will have seen a whole new planet, and in the next fifty years, possibly our grand-kids will come here for field trips and school projects.
So there is a civilisation far away from us, with which we will certainly share some relationship in future. But what might it look like?
In this illustration competition, we welcome participants to imagine taking a walk on this futuristic planet. We ask participants to sketch and illustrate walking through a future Martian Street, where movement through habitats and social spaces is explored.
The aim of the competition is to evoke the experience and feel of walking through a Martian settlement.
This competition is open for all the Students, Artists, Graphic designers, Illustrators, Architects & Teachers from all corners of the Earth.
Join this competition & explore a version of Martian Streets through your skills.
