"HumanKind - Reasons To Be Hopeful."

Kindly is launching a campaign that will shine a light on the potential of HumanKind through a diverse collection of original creative content. So, got a story to tell that will spread hope? A rallying call that will bring people together? Something to say to the problems we all face? Create something uplifting and help kickstart a creative movement.

Together with a panel of creative industry figures, we’ll be awarding up to 10 prizes of £250 to those entries that we deem the most original, compelling, and entertaining.

 

The Brief

- Create a piece of content that communicates your REASONS TO BE HOPEFUL for the future of Humankind.

It can be serious or fun, global or personal, factual or abstract. Perhaps you know a true story of unity or kindness. Maybe you have a message to those who doubt the power of HumanKind, or want to flex your creative muscles to make a statement direct to the problems in the world. Use your creative skills to spread hope and brings people together.   

- Pick your creative medium - it could be a video, image, song, podcast, dance, play, piece of writing, illustration, comic, or gif. As long as it can be uploaded and viewed on the internet, the choice is yours.

- Work alone, or join forces with a team. 


The Campaign

All the content will be collated on the HumanKind campaign page on Kindly.com, with a credit to each creator and link to your portfolio/ social media. 

Our goal is to create a diverse collage of creative content that fills people with hope, and reminds everyone of the power of HumanKind. We want to set a new standard for the way campaigns are run and how we tackle important causes. This launch campaign will be a showcase for innovative creative work and collaboration; so make it different, show off your style, and have some fun.
