Call for entries: Design Against Fur Fashion (UK)

imageThe Design Against Fur Fashion 2014 competition is now open for registration to UK students and recent graduates. Respect for Animals invites all students to take part in this fashion competition.

The aims of the competition are to emphasise the positive aspects of non-fur ‘fabrics’ in fashion and incorporating an anti-fur message into your design or video, showing that killing animals for their fur is wrong and cruel.

Entrants are invited to enter their fur-free fashion designs and videos for a chance to win cash prizes and help promote the ethical and environmental benefits of being fur-free.
Your work will be evaluated by fashion experts and leaders, and potentially used in national and international campaigns to end the cruel fur trade.

Whether you are entering the T-shirt, Garment Design or Video section of the competition, DAFF want you to create an innovative piece of work which showcases a clear message that the wearing of fur is cruel and unnecessary. How you do it is up to you.

Make sure you register before the registration deadline passes, which is Sunday 20th April 2014.

Games for Change Festival 2014

imageThe Games for Change Festival is the largest gaming event in New York City and the leading international event uniting game creators with others who believe in the positive social impact of games. Major support for the festival is provided by Zynga.org, the Schusterman Family Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Festival will take place from April 22-24, 2014 at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts as part of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. In addition, the Games for Change Arcade, which is open to the public, will be held at the TFF Family Festival Street Fair, taking place on Saturday, April 26.

“The new relationship with the Tribeca Film Festival is an incredible opportunity to reach a new audience for the ‘games for good’ sector,” said Asi Burak, President of Games for Change. “Games are often discussed in the context of entertainment, but with this event, we’ll be able to share our message that this medium can be very powerful in creating positive change in the world.”

The Games for Change Festival will host the fifth edition of The Annual Games for Change Awards, which are designed to celebrate the year’s best “games for change.” Award nominees are submitted by game developers and a blue ribbon jury selects recipients in the following categories: Most Significant Impact; Most Innovative; Best Gameplay; Game of the Year. Finalists will be announced at the end of March, and the awards will be presented on the evening of April 23rd.
