Calling all artists – an image for Sierra Leone

19 July 2016

Could you design a modern image for the University-based charity Educational Awards in Sierra Leone (EASL)?

The UK committee for EASL is looking for an image to be adopted by the charity. The new image will be used on its webpage and at fundraising events; the first of which is a cake and craft sale in November 2016. All proceeds from EASL fund raising provide educational awards to enable students in Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown, to attend secondary school.

We are looking for a modern image with an African/educational theme which would lend itself to transfer onto crafts such as mugs, bags, cards and mouse-mats.

Line drawings, computer generated images, painting and photographs will all be welcomed.

Please email your design to by Friday 9 September. Multiple entries are welcomed!

The chosen design will be announced at the end of September and the artist will receive a gift set of the crafts produced for the November sale and acknowledgement on the charity’s website.
