Youth 4 Freedom International Design Contest

Stop trafficking sign

Have your t-shirt design presented at a major conference in the UK and Bulgaria.

Youth 4 Freedom together with HustleBucks are inviting you to produce a t-shirt design about human trafficking.

The competition

Youth 4 Freedom is a youth led project, and a campaign that aims to raise awareness about Human Trafficking. Human Trafficking is the second largest crime in the world. It is a global problem involving 27 million people from all ages, who are forced into different crime.

Your design must focus on one of the following crime issues:

• Sexual exploitation - women and teenagers being forced into prostitution

• Forced labour – where Men and Women are forced into work aboard for little or no pay due to their identities being stolen

• Organ donation – where people are illegally forced to donate organs on the black market

• Fraud – where people are forced to steal credit cards and peoples identities with the intention to extort money

• Theft/shoplifting – this crime includes people of all ages who are forced to pick pocket or steal

• Begging – this crime is a combination of Women and Children who are forced to beg on the streets.

Be as creative as you like but bear in mind the design must communicate your chosen crime simply and effectively.

This competition is open to everyone.


The strongest designs will be selected and sold in the HustleBucks shop as part of a collection and will also be presented at a major conference in the UK and Bulgaria later this year.

HustleBucks was started by young people with the idea to create a social enterprise which will provide opportunities for young people to learn and acquire new skills that will enable them to voice the issues that affect their lives and futures. This is communicated through a youth fashion brand and delivered through a retail business. Through their involvement young people gain valuable experience geared towards future employment in the creative and cultural industries.


Submit you design idea by 30 September 2014.
