Change Starts Now: Artivism Contest

From Guerrilla Girls to Ai Weiwei, art can be a powerful medium to change the world - or at least we think it's a great start! ;). If you’re a creative young artist (amateur, aspiring, professional) with a passion for human rights, then this challenge is for you! Create and submit a piece of your artwork to Amnesty´s ARTivism Contest.

You can participate with any form of audiovisual work from illustration, lettering, paint or spoken word, rap, you name it! Your inspiration should come from one of 10 youth cases and the human rights issues that they currently face.
