Submit to the Art for Planet Earth Design Competition

APE is a biannual design competition with change at its heart. It is about stimulating a shift in the mindset of creatives to encourage responsible thinking. And allowing you to contribute your creativity toward change.

For this debut edition, we give you a reusable glass bottle as a canvas to unleash your thoughts about global warming, climate change and our responsibility for the world. A design from the heart to motivate others in this critical age.

We are looking for positive, inspirational, thought-provoking and creative bottle packaging designs related to global warming and climate change. To stimulate your vision and ingenuity, we will regularly post inspirational news and stories related to this topic.

To enter the competition you must submit your entries via this website between 30 April and 20 August 2020. All submitted works will be judged by our international jury, and all will appear in a 3D mock-up that will be visible on the Gallery and open for public voting.

The three winning artworks will be printed on eco-friendly reusable glass bottles that will be available in our online webshop for six months. After every bottle is sold, Art for Planet Earth will donate 20% of all proceeds to 350.orgWWF UK and The Climate Coalition and grant the winning graphic artist a commission of 0,5%. Subsequent competitions will support other causes related to a better and brighter tomorrow.

The deadline for submission is August 20th, 2020. Click here for more information.
