Calling all artists! Join the @earthguardians “ExSTRAWdinary Art Exhibition”
The Earth Guardians International RYSE (Rising Youth for a Sustainable Earth) Youth Council aims to prove we can work without disparity of culture or country to help the earth and its people. They are raising awareness of plastic ocean pollution and catalyzing the global community to shift away from apathetic attitudes and the idea that it’s ‘too late’. How to be involved (final artwork accepted from now until June 3rd): 1. Create an artistic work inspired by the ocean and including a straw
2. Take photo/video recording/scan/digital copy of artwork. Name your artwork file with your full name and artwork title
3. Email artwork to email@example.com
4. Include your full name, artwork title, age and your nationality in the email message. Please also include your artist’s statement with the meaning behind your artwork explained (100 words max). Please send an email or contact them by facebook message if you are having trouble uploading your artwork or if the file size is too big.
5. *Optional* Participate in Earth Guardian’s campaign #LiquidStache by also uploading your liquid moustache photo. Your photo will be uploaded alongside your artwork with the hashtags #LiquidStache and #StopSucking. (Please note your photo will be public, so only participate if you’re comfortable sharing your face to the whole world)
6. All artworks will be shared on our facebook page. The winners will be judged by the council members. They will contact you directly by email if you have won.
Your artwork can be a painting, sculpture, video, song, poem, story, digital drawing, photo… the list is endless. The only limitation is that it must be able to be uploaded online and shared as a photo, pdf, gif, audio recording, video recording or written document.
Entries will be categorised into age groups: Under 12,12-16, 16-25 and 25+. The winner of each age group will receive a mystery prize.
