There’s still time to save coral reefs. If we act now, it doesn’t have to be too late.

THE PROBLEM:

In the last 30 years, we’ve lost over half of the world’s live coral. And the situation is only getting worse. Saving coral reefs is a fight we can’t afford to lose.

  • SUPPORTING 1 BILLION PEOPLE WITH FOOD AND INCOME

  • HOME TO A MILLION SPECIES AND A QUARTER OF ALL OCEAN LIFE

  • WORTH $375 BILLION A YEAR TO THE GLOBAL ECONOMY


 THE OCEAN IS GIVING US THE ULTIMATE WARNING.

Before they die, some corals glow in vibrant colours in a desperate bid to survive ocean heatwaves. It’s the most beautiful death in nature, but it’s currently going unnoticed.

WE’RE CALLING ON YOU TO CREATE UNIGNORABLE ART AND DESIGNS THAT MAKE THE WORLD TAKE NOTICE. ARE YOU IN?

YOUR BRIEF:

Create art and designs that make the world stop and take notice of glowing corals and the urgent ocean warning they represent. We’ll use it to inspire action and help win the fight to save coral reefs… before it’s too late.

Get creative using coral’s Glowing colours. Any medium*, any format**.

The only set requirement is the sole use of coral’s fluorescing colours - all three Glowing colours need to be used, with black and white as an optional secondary. They can be used in gradient form, but no other colours should be used. All the Glowing colours, imagery and inspiration can be found in the toolkit provided.

*You can create posters, animations, short films, illustrations, sculpture – don’t be limited! **If your medium isn’t digital, please photograph it so it can be shared digitally.
