In 2005, over 170 Palestinian civil society organizations united behind a call to the world to impose Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) on Israel until it complies with international law. Now, the Palestinian BDS Campaign National Committee (BNC) is calling on YOU to design a BDS logo for the campaign!!
This is an open call to all creative artists/designers who feel they can create a "brand" image for this fast growing Palestinian and international campaign. The new logo design must fulfill the following criteria:
1. The design must be new, unique, innovative and easily recognizable;
2. It must include the three letters B, D, and S – BDS has already
become a brand, but it needs a suitable graphic;
3. It should preferably use the four colors of the Palestinian flag;
4. It must express the spirit of the international BDS movement — a
campaign of civil resistance that is aimed at ending Israel’s occupation
and apartheid policies. Understand this in whichever creative way you like!
