Creative Challenge: Thank You to the Sanitation Workersby Porter Metzler on May 20, 2020
Charlotte’s Sanitation Workers Keep Us From Being A Mess
Trash and recycling collection is a difficult job. And the job has been a lot harder these past few months as we are all at home generating more garbage, more empty Amazon boxes, and more yard waste after we mow our lawn for the millionth time because we’ve run out of things to do.
We appreciate the hard work and dedication that our city’s sanitation workers are putting into their jobs. We know it’s often a thankless position. So, we want to say that we see you, we respect you, and we thank you. Now, we are asking for the Charlotte creative community to help us say “Thank you,” too.
For this week’s challenge, we want you to create a sketch of a graphic thanking the sanitation workers who have kept our streets clean. They’re helping keep us healthy while putting their own health at risk, and for that, we should all be grateful.
If we like your sketch, we’ll commission you to complete the graphic.
We’re looking for a graphic that is:
- Positive with its messaging
- Easily shareable on social media
We don’t need you to build your work completely. We just need a sketch of what you’re planning and links to previous work. From there, we’ll pick an idea we’d like to see completely fleshed out. And we’ll give you a $50 honorarium to help complete your design.
How to Be Considered
Your sketched out ideas and links to existing work must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11pm this Sunday, May 24. The winner and runners-up will be notified by Wednesday, May 27 via email. Everyone who participates will keep the rights to their art.
