Project: Doodle "Something Good in the World"
Welcome to a special edition of the GOOD Doodles project. This month, we're partnering with Cole Haan to ask you to "Doodle Something Good in the World." It's broad—we want doodles that illustrate what inspires you. Is there a person, group, object, or even idea that you feel is making a positive difference in the world? Draw it and share your art with the GOOD community. We welcome quick doodles and elaborate drawings alike.
Our panel of judges will include me, members of GOOD's editorial department, and Cole Haan, and will pick the top three best submissions. All three winners will receive a GOOD T-Shirt and a Cole Haan gift certificate ($500 for first prize, $250 for second, and $100 for third).
And even if you don't win you'll get the chance to share you sketching ability with a huge audience!
See below for more details.
Create a doodle that tells us about a person, group, object, or idea that you think makes the world better, and why.
The doodle can be as broad or as specific as you wish. It can be about a personal friend of yours who's doing something unusual and awesome, an company that's finding new ways to do business while doing good, or something much more abstract. It's a pretty broad prompt, so choose something unique and unexpected.
Submit you doodle here. It can be in any image format, but ideally it should be high enough resolution that it can be printed at 300 dpi. We prefer images that are taller versus wider. There are numerous methods for creating visual notes whether through digital means (tablets, digital sketchpads, etc.) or tangible methods such as using a Moleskine. Regardless of your choice, please ensure the images are as clean as possible. Feel free to include a brief summary of your illustration. We’ll take submissions now through Tuesday, May 10.
Please see official contest rules.
