The Nature Conservancy – Photographic Prize

http://youtu.be/-banVl1pxYE

From the Western Coral Coast to the Gold Coast in the East, Australia offers some of the most breathtaking landscapes and wildlife in the world.

That’s why we’re calling on you to enter the first annual Coast to Coast photo competition with The Nature Conservancy. Your favourite nature images of Australia can help not only to capture the beauty of our continent but also to create a photo collection that inspires the world to care more about conservation.

Design for Change

Design for Change is a unique and collaborative online space for designers, writers, thinkers, inventors, believers and changemakers to forge creative solutions to global problems.

This year, Oxfam Australia and the NSW Environment Protection Authority invite you to harness the power of design and communications for social change and come up with solutions to reduce food waste in Australian homes. Anyone with design, writing or marketing skills can respond to the challenge and potentially have their work turned into a national campaign.

Toy to the world project

Toy to the World is currently a biennial charity art event involving a custom vinyl toy design competition that provides both the opportunity for public to witness art creation happening live and the chance for artists to exhibit works while contributing their creations to help raising funds to go toward HIV research in the hopes of improving the lives of those affected by it.

The event is split into two distinct parts, the Design Day launch event where artists can collect a plain white vinyl toy and begin work live with provided paints and markers; and the Exhibition & Auction where all the complete works are judged by respected industry judges and displayed while a 2 week silent auction runs. Artists may pre-register their interest for a time slot on the Design Day, or may register to receive a vinyl toy to complete before the Exhibition.
