Climate March Design Contest

Hey artists – interested in getting your design all over the NYC subway system, making $10,000, and being instrumental in building the largest event demanding action on climate change in history?

Then check this out!


This is an invitation to change everything. In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take to the streets to demand the future we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.

We need one design to plaster the NYC subway for the month leading up to this march. Submit a killer idea for how to define this moment, get hundreds of thousands of people into the streets of New York City and to call on world leaders to take action to protect us all from catastrophic climate change. Artists, creative masterminds, InDesign wizards and passionate illustrators: this is your chance to put your work in front of famous artists, and motivate millions to take action on climate!

The winning design will be part of a massive buzz building campaign to get the word out about the People’s Climate March on September 21.

Entries will be evaluated by a panel of judges including art stars Shepard Fairey, Barbara Kruger and Swoon, as well as luminaries from the worlds of design, advertising and activism. Finalists will also have their art seen by millions, in a global poll of Avaaz members around the world.

Submit your design by Friday July 25th to be considered for the Grand Prize – your design all over the NYC subway for a month, $10k and a round-trip ticket to NYC for September 21st, 2014 to join the march!
