The contest is open to non-profit organizations and churches located anywhere in the world.
Any current or previous clients of PlainJoe are ineligible to participate in the competition.
To enter the contest, participants must submit a video of no more than 5 minutes in length that explains the good their organization does in the world and why they need a design intervention from PlainJoe, a Storyland Studio. The video should be submitted via the official contest webpage, and participants must provide their contact information and agree to the official rules and terms and conditions.
The deadline for submissions is July 3rd, 2023. Entries submitted after this date will not be considered.
Entries will be judged based on several factors, including the organization's impact on the world, the potential impact of a design intervention, and the organization's need for design services. Finalists will be selected by a panel of expert judges, then invited to give a Zoom presentation to the panel. The grand prize winner will be chosen from those finalists based on the aforementioned criteria.
The grand prize of the contest is 200 hours of free design services from PlainJoe. The prize is non-transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash or any other products or services.
The grand prize winner will be notified via email or phone within 14 days of the judges' panel meeting. If the winner cannot be contacted within 7 days of notification, the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected.
