Do you like graphic design? Are you an artist? Are you passionate about human rights? The Blind Project is running a contest called Be A Biographer for those of you who want to put your skills to good use. The website tells the story of three trafficking victims, and your job is to create a design based on one of their experiences.
The winner’s design will be included into fashion items, printed for gallery exhibitions, and shown in advertising campaigns. Not a bad way to get your creative work out there! Here are some of the submissions so far. The submission deadline is September 15th. Voting takes place from September 16th to Ocotber 7th, and the winner is announced on October 21st. If you do submit some work for this contest, please let me know so I can show your creative creation on this blog as well!
Check out the Be A Biographer website, and Mandy Van Deven’s interview with the Blind project’s Kevin Kim for more info. It’s time to put your creative skills to good use and give a voice to those who are suffering.
