GOOD Maker Challenge: Win $5,000 to Make GOOD Art

Here at GOOD, we believe that art is essential; it connects us more deeply with the world and helps us express ourselves in unique ways.

Remember sitting in your elementary school classroom with crayons, a blank canvas, and a wild imagination? We bet you produced some art that you were pretty damn proud of. Here at GOOD, we believe that art is essential to being a well-rounded person; it connects us more deeply with the world and helps us express ourselves in unique ways. Let’s get those imaginations running wild again and make some more art - and GOOD Maker has $5,000 to help you get started.

Whether you want to organize a crowdsourced art project on a neighborhood street, hold a benefit concert featuring local bands, or set-up an art gallery for children’s doodles, GOOD Maker can help activate your idea. Simply tell us what’s innovative about your project and how it will bring more art into your community, and we’ll award $5,000 to the top-voted submission.

Entries for the Make GOOD Art challenge will be accepted from July 11 through August 8 at noon Pacific Time. Voting will be open from August 9 through September 23 at noon Pacific Time.
