Due to social media age restrictions, youth age 12 or under must have a parent or guardian post their submission from the adult’s social media account. If this is a challenge, youth and/or parents may email their submission to Amplifier at [email protected]

Youth are not required to be United States citizens, but must be based in the United States in order to apply.

Upon selection, youth art may be presented and promoted on the Amplifier website, across social media platforms, and featured in Amplifier prints and gallery exhibitions with artist credit and links to any existing online portfolios. All selected youth artists will be required to complete a parental permission form.


Youth may submit digital designs or scanned/photographed captures of their submission. Standard 8.5”x11” paper may be used for submissions, however youth should note that selected art will ultimately be scaled and printed on 18”x24” posters.


Selection of 50 featured youth artists will be made by a panel of curators including artists Ernesto Yerena, Tatyna Fazlalizadeh, National Geographic Photographer Paul Nicklen, Michaela Mujica-Steiner from Earth Guardians, and representatives from the People’s Climate March.
