Submission Guidelines for Advocacy and Community Organizations

CUP is looking for community and advocacy organizations who are working to address policy issues that need visual explanation, and where the lack of understanding of this issue is leading to social injustice. We seek groups who work directly with the constituencies impacted by the issues and who can distribute the completed Making Policy Public directly to that audience. Applicants should be interested in engaging in a collaborative design process and, most of all, interested in explaining an aspect of public policy. Applicants must be able to attend meetings in New York City.

Honoraria, Additional Resources

+ CUP manages the collaboration, oversees all aspects of production, provides art direction, research, copywriting, and additional support as needed.
+ Advocates will receive 1,000 free copies of the foldout poster to distribute directly to their constituency.
+ CUP will publicize the projects and promote them for design awards and press.

The call for advocates is open! Applications are due on Monday, September 14th, 2020 at 12 PM EST!

Sign up for the CUP mailing list to receive news about the call.
