10 ways YOU can use Graphic Design for social change! ~ 4. Enter a Competition

Following my previous post “Lets use graphic design for social change!” I am creating a series of posts where I will explore 10 ways YOU can use Graphic Design for Social Change. Todays idea: 4. Enter a Competition

4. Enter artwork into competitions for not for profit awareness

Create an inspiring poster and enter it in a competition. First of all its fun! Its a chance to work your own project where you can be free to design whatever you wish without client constraints. Not only will you have an awesome piece for your portfolio but it will help get your creative juices flowing for other areas of your work. Best of all, it will help a worthwhile cause. There are a number of websites running poster competitions to create awareness of social issues. See below:
