Worried about the number of young voters who haven't registered, Wolfgang Tillmans created a series of posters, which pretty clearly outline why you should register to vote, and that your vote should be to remain in the EU. Wolfgang's posters have been all over the internet and now they can be on you. As the deadline to register to vote looms large (by Tuesday June 7th), the German photographer and longterm i-D collaborator has printed out a selection of his posters on T-shirts and kindly shared them with us. We're inviting friends, family and followers of i-D to be shot wearing them as we take over Protein Studios in east London on Monday 6th June between 12 and 3pm. 

On his website, Wolfgang brilliantly sets out his case. "The weakening of the EU is a goal being actively pursued by strongmen like Vladimir Putin and European parties on the far-right. Brexit could effectively spell the end of the EU. It's a flawed and problematic institution, but on the whole it stands for a democratic worldview, human rights and favours cooperation over confrontation." We couldn't put it any better ourselves. It's a vast political institution that you might not have considered properly until now, when we are on the brink of leaving. Don't let someone else decide your future, have your say and be shot straight up by Holly Falconer for i-D! To take part join us on Monday at Protein Studios, 31 New Inn Yard, London EC2A 3EY.

You can see the series of posters and read Wolfgang's thoughts in full on his website, and register to vote on the Government website.
