CArtREfugee – Postcard Design Competition 2022

中文


Background

According to the United Nations, currently there are more than 11 million people have fled their homes in Ukraine since the conflict began. As of April 27, more than 5.3 million refugees have left Ukraine. Most of them fled to the neighboring countries e.g. Poland, Romania, Russia, Hungary and Moldova to seek for refuge.
This year, we would like to dedicate our CArtREfugee Postcard Design Competition to Ukrainian refugees. All artists and designers, young and old, are invited to submit a creative postcard under the theme of ‘We Care’. Winners’ designs will be printed, exhibited, distributed and sent to Ukrainian refugees in overseas.
