Being Human design competition 2015

Being Human design competition 2015

Calling all designers, illustrators and creatives!


We’re calling on all budding designers, illustrators, artists and creatives to enter our Being Human 2015 design competition. The winning design will be used to create all manner of amazing products, from tote bags to banners, badges and more importantly, will help us spread the humanities far and wide.

In 2014, the Being Human festival featured more than 160 events organised by over 100 cultural partners across the country, with an audience of around 20,000. Participating institutions included the British Museum, the Wellcome Collection and the National Museums of Scotland.

The winning design will be used for Being Human promotional materials throughout our 2015 campaign, and will benefit from national exposure during this time and beyond. In addition, the winning designer will be profiled on the Being Human website and introduced as the competition winner to the festival’s network of over 100 universities and cultural organisations across the UK.

We are looking for a simple, eye-catching and engaging design to use on posters and flyers for the Being Human festival, 2015. The winning design will replace our 2014 campaign artwork and will help us to achieve our core aim of engaging non-academic audiences with the humanities.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 15 June 2015 has been extended to Monday 29 June. Check out the full call and how to enter [PDF 343kb]. Can’t wait to see what ideas you come up with!
