Could you create a winning design around 'Consent' for the charity STARS Dorset?

The Dorset charity is running a competition, asking for people to create designs around the theme of 'consent'. From all those that enter three designs will be chosen which will then be used to print on t-shirts and other merchandise which the charity will go on to sell. Anyone who is 16 years or older can enter. Ultimately the charity wants designs that will appeal to a wide audience and will help them raise vital funds for the work they do and promote discussion around consent. STARS Dorset supports anyone of any age or gender who lives, works or studies in Dorset and has suffered any form of sexual trauma at anytime in their life.

Slogans can be used within the design, but are not essential,  such as 'The Way I Dress Does Not Mean Yes' or 'If I Was ‘Asking For It’ I Would Have Asked For It' or entrants can come up with their own words that they think would help promote discussion and raise awareness around the topic.

All designs should be emailed to [email protected] by 1st August 2021. Included in the email should be your full name and a contact telephone number and approximately 150 words explaining your design and a few words about yourself. The number of entries per person is not limited. The winning entrants will be notified by 15th August. By entering the competition you agree to allow STARS Dorset to use your design how they wish. Please read the Design Brief and the Full Terms and Conditions here.

Please make sure if you are entering the competition that:

  1. You save your artwork in PNG, with a 300 dpi setting.
  2. Your design is saved onto a transparent background.
  3. If your design has fine detail, please make sure all line-work or text is wider than 2mm
  4. You use RGB Colour Mode
  5. Your document size is A3 (297x420mm) , please leave a 2.5cm blank boarder around your artwork

STARS Dorset in conjunction with the Arts University Bournemouth Students Union will choose the three winning designs. Their decision will be final.
