Jon Burgerman and Adam Higton among artists to submit to #TurnUp voting campaign

19 May 2017

Jon Burgerman

Illustration and animation agency Jelly London has worked with UK charity Bite the Ballot to create the #TurnUp campaign, inviting creatives to submit work to encourage young people to register and vote in the general election. The charity is focused on getting 18-24-year-olds to vote, and has previously partnered with companies like Twitter, Lego, Uber, Starbucks and designer Vivienne Westwood.

The brief is open to anyone and must be party neutral, and include the tagline #TurnUp. Selected artworks will form part of a primarily social media campaign, although the artwork could potentially be used in outdoor media spaces such as music venues, football stadiums, shopping centres and universities.

Artworks submitted so far range vary in tone, from Jon Burgerman’s Don’t be a silly sausage to Adam Higton’s comic strip style narrative, and John Devolle’s impactful call to action.

The deadline for entries is 22 May.
