User-added image

06 Feb 2018

4pm to 6.30pm

Postgraduate students at UAL are invited to take part in a challenge to design and produce creative materials in any medium which communicate one or more aspects of WaterAid’s work to the wider community. A briefing will be delivered by WaterAid’s team on Tuesday 6 February, aimed at providing participants with the insight to produce material(s) which will be shared with WaterAid and UAL’s student community.

The deadline for submissions will be Friday 16 March, after which point a judging panel will gather to choose top submissions. Winners will have the opportunity to gain exposure and recognition through WaterAid’s own digital channels. First place will also receive an impressive prize gifted by one of WaterAid’s partners.

Furthermore, all individuals who submit a work will gain a guaranteed place at two bespoke creative masterclasses delivered by WaterAid’s in-house creative team in April.
