Graphic design competition: Can you adapt this picture to one that suits our new theme?
In 2012, Inclusive Works, FEBE Support and the British Council the Netherlands organised a children's competition. The theme of the competition was 'new gender roles in the multicultural society'. The contest was very successful. More than 350 children's stories were submitted from over 30 countries. On 18 March 2013, the winners were announced. More than 100 people were present at the awards ceremony.
In 2014 we will organize a second children's stories competition. But....
We need a new 'image' that depicts the theme of this second competition.
We therefore invite (student) graphic designers to adapt the original image (above) to one that better suites the theme of the competition. Please read the document carefully to participate in our competition.
The competition is open to anyone who wants to participate. For more information about the competition open the following document:
