Over £2,500 in prizes up for grabs in our creative remix project helping to support the NHS & Mind

An open invitation to people of all abilities to remix some incredible artists in design, illustration, art, animation and music.

What is Life on Hold?

Covid-19 has meant that normal life has been put on hold as we isolate ourselves from the world around us. Businesses have closed, many people have lost their jobs and society as we know it has come to a halt.

The brief in short  

Using the theme of ‘Life on Hold’, we are reaching out to the creative community to interpret the brief and produce designs, illustrations, animations and music that reflect the campaign theme. A full brief will be supplied to each participant.

Whilst some of us bunker up, there are amazing people who are on the frontline of this virus, serving the public and keeping essential services going. 


We want to help by raising £10,000 (or more) to support the NHS and the charity Mind, who are working tirelessly to support the nation.


Join us in this important mission and flex your creativity to spread art, animation, music and positivity during this difficult time!
