Oxfam GROW T-Shirt Design Challenge

This challenge closed almost 5 years ago.

The Challenge

We’ve teamed up with the good people at Oxfam for a new t-shirt design challenge to help raise awareness for their GROW campaign. GROW is about the 1 billion people who go to bed hungry each night, it’s about food: food production and distribution and food insecurity. GROW strives for equality, sustainability and a re-imagining of the food system – to one where we can grow, eat, and live in a better way.

The winning design will be the one that best encapsulates the GROW campaign and creatively demonstrates the ideas behind GROW and helps draw attention to this important cause.

The design and artist’s biography will feature prominently throughout the campaign, on the Oxfam site and on shirts sold in the Oxfam shop.

We will also donate a menagerie of animals through Oxfam Unwrapped on behalf of the Top 20 winners. These donated buffalo, ducks and chickens have the ability to transform the lives of people living in poverty, all because you made a tee.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Entries will be shortlisted by the community through the voting process. The final winners will be selected by an Oxfam panel from the Top 20. Oxfam will select the final winners based on how they demonstrate:

- An understanding of the GROW campaign and issues surrounding the global food system

- A creative interpretation of the brief and a visually stunning design

You do not need to use the logos, or the words ‘Oxfam’ or ‘Grow’ in your design, in fact designs that graphically deal with the brief without logos would be preferable.

- Your design & biography will be featured in the Oxfam online store for the duration of the campaign. All proceeds will go to help feed families throughout the world.
