We organised this unique competition to provide people sitting at home with a creative outlet through which they can explore their horizons. As we wanted to encourage a freedom of expression and perspective, we did not keep any material restrictions or design limitations.
The response was outstanding and it was humbling to see the global impact of this crisis. We received many innovative designs with compelling stories.
