Free Augmented Reality posters for International Women’s Day 2018

Enlighten augmented reality specialists have partnered with IWD and created a series of FREE augmented reality posters.


Working closely with CompTIA and as a proud member of their focus group for Dream IT, the UK community for advancing women in IT and tech based careers Enlighten have developed an Augmented Reality  campaign allowing users to “Reimagine Rosie” for the 21st Century.

Parker Fraley, who was the inspiration for the Rosie the Riveter poster, passed away on January 20th, 2018.  As a tribute to this incredible woman, for International Women’s day Enlighten chose Rosie for the campaign, as what she stood for during WW2 is still relevant today. She was the embodiment of an empowered woman forging ahead in a formerly male dominated industry

Enlighten have also developed an Augmented Reality poster, in conjunction with the Armed Forces showcasing the incredible journey of the Ice Maidens. Their aim was to complete the first all-female British Military team crossing of the Antarctic Landmass under their own power.

The Ice Maidens are the first all-female team to ski coast to coast across Antarctica using muscle power alone. It required extraordinary leadership, courage and teamwork to complete this challenge. Skills that are relevant for all women in all walks of life, not just those in extreme conditions!

The Ice Maiden Expedition enabled pioneering medical research into how the female body copes with extreme endurance in polar environments – the female soldiers endured temperatures of   -52, burned 5500 calories per day in 24-hour daylight!

They also seek to inspire a new era of female expeditionary spirit both within, and outside of, the military and to promote the development of leadership, teamwork, moral and physical courage vital to the delivery of operational capability. To inspire women to challenge themselves and lay the foundations for females in the military to plan and lead future expeditions.

For both campaigns also included are relevant contact details so AR users can get in touch instantly for more information should they wish to.
