Apply for International Identity Day Design Competition. In recognition of the 4th anniversary commemorating International Identity Day (ID-Day) on September 16, ID4Africa, as a founding member of the Identity Day Coalition, is inviting African digital artists to participate in our first-ever Design Competition.

The purpose of the design is to promote ID-Day with an impactful image that will both inspire and encourage the worldwide community to rally around this important cause. As digital artists, this will be your opportunity to use your creativity to raise awareness of identity as a key enabler of inclusive socio-economic development in all countries worldwide but most importantly in Africa. The winning design will become the official theme design for ID-Day 2021 which will be made accessible on our website for re-use by the international community to commemorate the occasion.
