The UK’s most exciting and innovative digital human rights charity is seeking up to three volunteer illustrators to create captivating imagery for its award-winning volunteer-written social justice content.
RightsInfo is a fast-growing charity which is changing the way people communicate about human rights. We build knowledge and support for human rights in the UK with engaging, accessible and beautifully-presented online content. In just two years, our videos, infographics, stories, quotes and explainers have brought us a monthly organic Facebook reach of five million and tens of thousands of followers. We have won the Plain English Communicator Award, a 2017 UK Blog Award, and our work has just been officially selected at the Annecy International Animation Festival.
We are looking for up to three volunteer illustrators to bring to life the excellent editorial content. Please apply with any style – line work, 2D, 3D, collage, photo montage, lithography, screenprint, pop-art, digital, etc.
The most important ability we are looking for is you being able to visually capture an article’s DNA in one arresting image creating an eye-catching visual headline to draw in the masses amongst the blaze of social media.
We’d like you to submit an illustration to be the hero image, and share visual, for this article.
Please look beyond the current photo and think about the tension in the piece, the theme of parenthood and choice, the empowerment of rights, what they protect and how, etc. Really get to grips with the piece, and then create your image. Please prepare an A4 landscape, RGB, image at 300 dpi.
This is an unpaid volunteer role. RightsInfo is a charity committed to nourishing its volunteer team with personal development, training, networking opportunities, mentoring and celebrates them at every opportunity:
