Every year thousands of children around the world get caught up in war, becoming innocent victims. The charity War Child
has set out to protect, educate and stand up for their rights, and every year they host a week of music events in London together with telecommunications brand O2
, to raise awareness and funds, as part of BRIT's Week and the campaign #WearItForWarChild.O2 and War Child are inviting artists from around the world to create visual artwork that captures the campaign line ‘#WearItForWarChild’. Your visuals simply have to capture the imaginations of people and inspire them to take part in the online campaign #WearItForWarChild - they should be positive, uplifting and encourage people to take part in a great and worthy cause.
O2 and War Child are looking for creative visuals (including illustration, graphic design, paper art, illustration on top of photography, etc.) inspired by #WearItForWarChild. They are also looking for short-form/animated content including GIFs or cinemagraphs. Please do not submit hard-hitting visuals of children in war zones, but focus on getting people excited about rallying their support around the campaign #WearItForWarChild and the amazing work War Child can do as a result of funds raised.
Five designs will be selected and the Selected Artists will receive the opportunity for their work to be used by O2 and War Child to drive awareness of the War Child charity and the #WearItForWarChild campaign. The work may be used on social, in experiential or at live music events in the UK in 2017. They will also receive £500 per piece selected.
