We’ve all heard of the old adage that a picture speaks a thousand words. As we as a civilization progress, we’re witnessing the power of visual media grow. Skills like digital illustration are some of the most sought after skills today, but sadly not all who could benefit from it have the tools or means to do so.
As the world opens itself in the aftermath of COVID-19, nonprofits around the world are just starting to get back on their feet. One of the most crucial factors for their recovery is to tell their story to more and more people, so help can come from that many directions.
A thousand colors of justice aims to create a free access repository of illustrations spreading the message of racial equality and justice for nonprofits. The illustration entries that we get will be used by nonprofits across the globe in their social media, print media and other channels for their marketing and awareness campaigns.
Most non-profits spend most of their time directly dealing with their social cause on a daily basis, and depend on monetary help for their operations. With limited resources in these challenging times, some of the skills that seem natural to us (marketing, strategy, social media in general) are not so easy for nonprofits. Even though there are a lot of free vectors, icons and stock photos floating around the internet, there is a huge gap between what’s available, and what’s directly relevant.
Your contribution will add to a public resource library of artwork that nonprofits can use in their social media, websites, newsletters, and print to help their cause and create awareness.
We will send you an email confirming your submission, and let you know when your designs go live on our public resource library! You can share this opportunity, and your work with others and inspire them to contribute, just like you did.
By dedicating just 1-2 hours, you can create real meaning for a nonprofit. All help counts- a poster, a picture, a creative raising awareness, etc. You can create one, or even more creatives. The more the merrier, but every contribution is valuable for a nonprofit’s journey.
If you have any experience with graphic designing or illustration at all, your contribution will be valuable.
We welcome all contributions that are original. A creative that is non-offensive, non-violent, and doesn’t hold strong visible political tones, ensures that the artwork remains relevant for maximum use.

Ofcourse. You will be prompted to share your social handle so we can duly credit your work. You can share links to your Instagram/ Twitter/ Behance or Dribble profiles. You can also share a link to your personal website, if you would prefer to be credited that way.
