Create an original T-shirt design promoting the Fairtrade movement in Australia and New Zealand- and win prizes!
Calling all graphic designers, fashion designers and students of design with a mind for activism.
We are looking for a new and inspiring design to promote the Fairtrade movement across Australia, New Zealand and then the world. The winning designs will be printed onto Etiko Fairtrade T-Shirts- available in white, black or grey and sold through our channels.
We have run a Fairtrade campaign in the past using the slogan “Change Today, Choose Fairtrade”. You may like to incorporate that slogan into your submission or create a new message - as long as it’s about promoting the Fairtrade movement, it’s on brief! Please note-when using the Fairtrade logo it needs to be within guidelines and any eligible submission needs to be a match to the Etiko and Fairtrade agenda- Fairtrade, Organic, and extremely inspiring.
So do your research.
Here’s your chance to be heard on a T-shirt, rock the boat, start the conversation and inspire change. We want more people in Australia and New Zealand to care about the community impact work of Fairtrade and we want our community to design the T-shirt that inspires this and to get more people talking about what we’re trying to achieve.
Etiko is the pioneer of Fairtrade fashion in Australia and New Zealand, the only fashion brand to achieve an A+ in every single Australian Ethical Fashion Report (2013-2019) plus in 2016, Etiko became the first fashion brand to ever win an Australian Human Rights Award. We can trace our ethical supply chain right back to the seed that is used to grow our organic cotton and the trees used to produce our natural rubber in our footwear, and of course we only use compostable packaging. We’re proud of our achievements but still have a lot of work to do, maybe you can help us spread the good word.
