World Humanist Day card competition for young creatives

With the reopening of schools and Humanists UK’s 125th birthday fast approaching, Humanists UK has announced its very special World Humanist Day card competition for young creatives.

This competition was conceived by Asad Abbas, a committed member of our SE London Humanist community and long-time Secretary of the Bromley Humanist Group, who hopes it will lead to wider public recognition of the holiday.

World Humanist Day is an annual event on 21 June each year when humanists around the world celebrate a global tradition of humanist thinking

Humanists UK is inviting budding graphic designers, artists, photographers, poets, and creatives of all kinds to design a card which it will make available to buy from the Humanists UK website. There are three different age categories (ages 14-18, 11-13, and those 10 and under), and prizes are on offer, including a £200 cash prize. The competition is open to all forms of art – including symbolism, photography, figurative drawings, illustrations, and typographical art – provided submissions are made as high-resolution JPEG (.jpg) files suitable for print. The competition closes on 25 April.
