Got a Digital Illustration that Shows Generations Working Together?
Respond to an open call from CoGenerate and Fine Acts today!
CoGenerate recently teamed up with Fine Acts, a global creative studio for social impact, to launch an open call for illustrations showing generations working together for change.
We’re looking for illustrations that show older and younger people coming together to forge bonds, bridge divides and solve our biggest problems — like climate change, the housing crisis, food insecurity, loneliness, and racial injustice — together.
If you have an existing or new illustration, submit it today for a chance to join the “Generations for Change” collection.
Five selected works will be published under an open license on TheGreats.co, so that activists and nonprofits globally can use them in their work (only non-commercially). If selected, you keep the ownership of your work, and can still sell it and use it to make profit – you merely license it for strictly non-commercial use by others.
Submit by June 7. Please submit only works you have created and you own the copyright to.
If chosen, you will:
- Get a licensing fee of $200.
- Receive an award certificate.
- Have your work displayed on The Greats, the largest global platform for open socially engaged visuals.
And stay tuned for announcements about the upcoming collection!
