Calling young people with a passion for changing the world!

HUMIFORM aims to amplify and unite the voices of young people around issues you care about. We create ethically made printed t-shirts that are designed and voted on by young people, for young people

If you are under the age of 18, tell us what social and environmental issues matter to you and design artwork for a printed t-shirt you would wear proudly in your community. HUMIFORM is looking for strong, witty, beautiful designs, much like the ones we saw on the home made placards at the recent Schools Strike 4 Climate, that will persuade the adults with the power to sit up and pay attention. The election is coming up this year and it is more important than ever that young people send a strong message about the kind of change you want to see.


Winners will receive:

  • The winning designs will be printed on limited edition t-shirts that will send a message to the world about the change young people want to see
  • $250 prize money
  • The power to help determine which organisation/s will receive a percentage of t-shirt sales

Once entries close, artwork will be shortlisted and then put to a public vote to determine which 3-6 designs are made into t-shirts. Democracy in action!

  • Hand drawn designs must be done in black texta, preferably a Sharpie or something similar, on white A4 paper, scanned and submitted as pdf/jpg/jpeg/png files. Many schools are able to scan documents and Officeworks provides scanning services.
  • Digital designs must be done in black and white only and submitted as 100-300dpi pdf/jpg/png files, no larger than 10MB.
  • Designs must be apolitical, please do not refer to any specific political party or politician. At HUMIFORM we aim to send a message to ALL political parties and leaders to take action on issues that matter to you.
  • Please keep the language and the design clean, i.e. no profanities, no offensive language or drawings.
  • Make sure you read through the terms and conditions and submission guidelines below.
  • All entrants must be under the age of 18 as of May 18, 2019.
