Through our Global Open Call for Art we are awarding $1000 to 100 artists from around the world to create symbols that build trust in the safety and efficacy of vaccines, advocate for vaccine equity, and help combat vaccine disinformation.
“Throughout this pandemic, I have felt overwhelmed by fear. It was a constant that had refused to dwindle – until gradually, those I was fearing for have been able to get their vaccines. I wanted to create a piece that reflected the joy and hope that this vaccine has revived in me and so many others. Through joyful colors, illustration, and the idea of connectedness, I’ve created a piece that I hope can encourage others to see the opportunity to get vaccinated as something to celebrate.” – Mckenna Fosdick
