What are the Creative Conscience Awards?
Creative Conscience is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to improve the communities in which we live and work and in turn help transform the wider world. We will achieve this through the promotion of socially valuable, human centered design that will enable and inspire people to change their lives and the lives of those around them for the better. Founded by Chrissy Levett in 2012, Creative Conscience has already reached over 26,000 people. The Awards encourage, recognise and reward students and graduates across the design spectrum for developing projects that are in line with our aims.

For the winners
The winners of the Creative Conscience Awards will be invited to a networking awards ceremony in London, providing a gateway into the professional world through mentorship or internships (through the CCA network) and profile building PR activities. Some entries may also receive help with their concepts through our IMPACT project.
Open Brief Background
Creative Coscience is looking for solutions and provocations that will call people to action and can lead to genuine impact. The potential to develop proposals into real life-changing solutions should also be considered.
The themes you might wish to explore can be broad and varied. Past projects have included design solutions for food waste, humanitarian aid, education, water shortage, energy efficiency, inclusivity, and campaigns against FGM, bullying, inequality, poverty, homelessness, child abuse, over-consumption, mental illness, urban living etc.
Bright Futures Background
When faced with the challenges of the world today, it’s easy to feel frustrated, ineffective, and hopeless. ‘How can I possibly make a real difference?’ we hear as people descend into apathy and disengagement.
Unilever believe that today, we actually live in a world of unprecedented possibilities, if we choose to see it that way. They believe strongly that with a positive outlook and a willingness to act, we are all capable of changing things. That’s why their point of view, as a company, is that: There’s never been a better time for us all to create a better future.
Bright Future is a movement that has been started by Unilever. It’s made up of a growing community of people who believe it is possible to build a world where everyone lives well and lives sustainably; who recognise we can only achieve this if we all work together to do small actions every day that make a real difference; and who inspire others to join us in making this the way everyone chooses to live.
Bright Futures Challenge
Your mission is to change the World and to get this message out there:
Create a compelling film, series of photographs, the up-cycling of garments, ethical fashion with slogans, a piece of graphic communication, a campaign, animation, a community, a concept, product, structure or even a building that inspires our society, to create a brighter future.
Why? Because if you think about it, a brighter future for humanity means happier, healthier people, both today and tomorrow. It means a future where every child reaches their 5th birthday. Where every girl grows up confident in a more equal world. Where no child goes to bed hungry and everybody has the means and motivation to eat healthily.
Your work will be eye opening, will make people think about how to positively impact our world now for future generations, it will inspire them to take action and get engaged in Bright Future programs that focus on children.
The tone of your solution should be conveyed as playful, uplifting and optimistic way without veering into worthy/serious/depressing. Be solution focused but please have fun with your creative ideas.
