Call for Artists: March for Science’s New Campaign
Submission Period: Tuesday, October 10 - Friday, October 20 by 5PM ET
The March for Science is hosting an open call for artists to create ‘The Vote For Science Pincause.’ This Pincause will be a 2.5” round work of art that sparks a nationwide conversation and inspires science supporters to act: make science part of policy making. The winning artist will receive $2,500, and the opportunity to further develop the look of this national campaign.
The original “Science Not Silence” March For Science Pincause, designed by Penelope Dullaghan, has sold over 25,000 copies and been seen in numerous national press outlets. Your Pincause will have a similar impact. A minimum of 10,000 pins will be produced and made available for purchase at Pincause.com, and will directly benefit the March for Science’s Vote for Science campaign.
Submission Details: Artists should develop concepts that are appropriate for use on a button, especially in terms of their readability and scale. Artwork should be inspired by the Vote for Science Mission: Creating a direct link between science supporters and their policymakers to strengthen science’s voice in policy and politics. Other points:
- The artwork should set a positive tone and ignite productive conversations.
- The artwork’s connection to the existing brand and palette, as well as integration of the phrase “Vote for Science” will be considered.
- The chosen finalists will be put-up for a public vote running from October 25th - 27th on MarchforScience.com/VoteForArt
