95% of Millennials feel the words ‘live and let live’ are words to live by, accepting others and being non- judgemental. PRIDE is the global celebration of inclusion and equality, which has been celebrated since the 1970s. Every year thousands of people around the world take to the streets to tell their story and to show their support for an inclusive and equal world, where there is room for everyone.
This year, Eastpak
will be part of that celebration, supporting PRIDE, the LGBTQ+ community, and empowering creators around the world to celebrate PRIDE with them.Create artwork that depicts and celebrates LGBTQ+ and PRIDE. Your artwork may be expressed as a portrait of yourself or someone who identifies as LGBTQ+, or more broadly focuses on how LGBTQ+ makes you feel and how you would express it visually.
Use static illustration, graphic design or mixed media to capture what LGBTQ+ means to you, and tell that story in a beautiful, visually inspiring way. You may take cues from the PRIDE colour palette, but first and foremost Eastpak are looking for LGBTQ+ stories expressed visually (not standard PRIDE rainbow coloured artwork).

Up to 15 pieces of work will be selected and receive £1,500 each, and potentially be shown at Eastpak’s PRIDE exhibition.
