Art is a powerful tool! Not only is it a great way for self-expression, it can also spread awareness! Find something you believe in (make it personal), and DRAW a message!


PROMPT: Choose one of the following topics, and illustrate a call-to-action.

  • Environment (Climate change, pollution, poaching, etc.)

  • Mental Health (Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, etc)

  • Poverty (homelessness, minimum wage, classism, etc)

  • Civil Rights (Feminism, Black lives, LGBTQ+, etc)


PRIZES

  • 1st - $200 and a matching donation ($200) to a charity/organization of the winner's choice

  • 2nd - $150 and a matching donation ($150) to a charity/organization of the winner's choice

  • 3rd - $100 and a matching donation ($100) to a charity/organization of the winner's choice

  • 4-6th - $50 and a matching donation ($50) to a charity/organization of the winner's choice

  • 7-10th - $25 and a matching donation ($25) to a charity/organization of the winner's choice


CRITERIA: Submissions will be judged based on the following.

Emotion (how much impact it deals, does it make the viewer FEEL something?)

Clarity (how easy a viewer can understand the message, show don't tell!)

Craft (neatness and attention to detail, mechanical 'wellness')


IMPORTANT NOTES:

  1. You must be a member of my discord to be eligible for rewards!

  2. Because this is a somewhat political contest prompt, I will be monitoring submissions VERY. CLOSELY. Any submissions that break our rules will be immediately deleted, and the artist will be banned from participating for the rest of the contest duration. Please read the discord rules carefully. Bans may be appealed through the ticket system, but will NOT be guaranteed.

  3. Stolen content or traced images will be automatically removed from the judging pool, and the artist will be banned from further participation.

  4. You're free to PM me or open a ticket if you have any questions about the contest prompt or your submission! Good luck!


DEADLINE: Saturday, October 2nd


The prize pool for this contest has been exponentially increased! This is something I wish to promote more, so PLEASE spread the word, share, and talk about the contest with any other artists or communities you know! I will post a few links for anyone who might not want to participate, but still wish to help with donations and prize pool money (everyone can be involved!)

thank you for making a contest around such important topics! Even though my deadlines for all my uni assignments will be around this time I will try to make an entry too :)

Please do! I want to give out as many prizes as possible, as I think these topics are very important too, and art is such an underrated way of being proactive!
