A Few Tips on Submitting Work for Global Citizen
We’re working with Global Citizen – a very dope organization trying to end poverty around the world – to design a poster for an upcoming event. This is a big opportunity for our community: not only is there the chance to earn $5000, but there will be global distribution of the selected poster. Learn more about the opportunities for the selected artists here.
We want to see your creative inspiration on what it means to "Be the Generation" that helps end extreme poverty.
We’ve chatted with the team at Global Citizen, and they’re looking for killer poster designs that celebrate diversity, activism, music, art, and community. Want to go abstract? That’s cool.
