#OnlyTogether: United Nations Verified Global Campaign for Fair Vaccine Access

Creators Selected On
May 5, 2021
Hey Talenthouse Community,

We were blown away by the calibre of artwork. We chose art that we felt represented a range of styles from creators all around the world. Our favourites were pieces that were future-facing and optimistic and also answered the brief clearly. Thanks again and I wish we could have picked more!

Kind Regards

United Nations Verified

Hey Everyone,

Thank you to everyone who has already submitted to the brief and look forward to seeing more work come through in the last couple of days. We excitingly also have this brief on our youth platform Untitled!

If you are interested in participating or have friends or family aged 7-18 years old wanting to become designers or creators, lead them here to the Untitled UN #onlytogether Brief!

Thanks again
Talenthouse Team - Last updated 12th April 2021

The pandemic has affected people around the world in so many ways. We’re all looking forward to getting back to our lives after the pandemic, but what’s the one thing you can’t wait to do again? We want to capture the global picture of the pandemic and our hopes and dreams for the future from incredible creatives around the world.

The United Nations Verified campaign is calling for creatives around the world to share content ranging from photos, short videos, gifs, or pieces of original art that represents what you most look forward to doing again once the pandemic is over, using the hashtag #OnlyTogether

On March 11, the United Nations Verified is launching #OnlyTogether, a new campaign calling for fair and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines around the world. Over the past year, we’ve all missed out on things we love -- time with family, celebrations, school. Millions of us have also lost someone we love or had our livelihoods destroyed. But no community can recover alone. Only Together can we end the pandemic.

A minimum of 10 pieces of work will be chosen by the United Nations Verified campaign as Selected Creators and will receive $500 each. There are two selection periods for this brief; Early Selections & Final Selections

  • Your artwork can include the words "We Will .............. Again" (with you filling in the blank). This can be shown in your own creative interpretation or literally adding the text along with your artwork

ABOUT UN Verified Campaign
Verified was launched by United Nations in May 2020 to counter misinformation about the pandemic, promote science-backed health information and share stories of the global impact of COVID-19 in order to promote a shared, global recovery.


About the #OnlyTogether Campaign

People everywhere want to get back to their lives as soon as possible - to see friends and family, celebrate, learn and work alongside each other. But if different countries move at different speeds then there is no guarantee that life will ever be the same. No community can truly get back to normal in isolation. This is a race against a virus, not against each other. We must have a global vaccine plan that prioritises groups because of need and not geography.

A minimum of 10 pieces of work will be chosen by the United Nations Verified as Selected Creators. Each will:
  • Potentially have their work used across United Nations Verified social, digital, and wider marketing channels
  • Receive $500 for each piece selected
