Pollinator Partnership Poster

November 14, 2017


The Pollinator Partnership is seeking an artist to render the 2018 Pollinator Poster, this year focusing on “Pollinators and Seeds: Supporting healthy ecosystems and food security.”


Each year, the Pollinator Partnership, along with a wide range of partners (including federal agencies, non-profits, for-profits, individuals, etc.) design and distribute an educational pollinator poster. About 200,000 posters are distributed throughout the United States each year. They are one of the most popular outreach material items offered and are distributed for the cost of shipping and handling.

Our vision for the poster is to highlight the important role that pollinators play in plant reproduction. Without pollinators most flowering plant species would not survive. About 80% of all flowering plants on the earth need help with pollination. Pollinators provide pollination services to over 180,000 different plant species and more than 1,200 crops. This year’s poster should portray how both managed and wild pollinators support human food systems from seed to mouth.

Additionally, plants play an important role in pollinator health. Native plant communities are an essential foundation for ecosystem integrity and diversity. Healthy native plant communities create habitat for animals; provide ecosystem services that sustain people, their communities, and their economies; and have intrinsic and irreplaceable biotic value that will become increasingly important in the future. Native seed reserves are essential in restoring damaged lands after fires and hurricanes, and these restored and recovered lands will benefit both pollinators and people.

We envision this being an artistic combination of the beautiful diversity of seeds (sizes, shapes, and colors), and a cross section of plant life (from seeds to flowers), pollinators, restored lands, and foods. Let this spark creativity, but do not feel limited to these visions. The most important part of creating any poster is to make it a beautiful work of art that also communicates an idea or behavior that supports pollinator heath. A scientific/naturalistic style is preferred. The P2 staff will work with the artist on scientific accuracy and detail.
