Making Policy Public 2017: Call for Proposals

The call for proposals for the 10th anniversary year of Making Policy Public is now open. CUP seeks organizations who are working to address a policy issue that would benefit from a visual explanation, and where the lack of understanding of this issue is leading to social injustice.

The organization seeks groups who work directly with the constituency impacted by the issue and can distribute the completed foldout poster to them. Advocates receive 1,000 free copies of the publication they help produce.

CUP also seeks designers and visual artists with an interest in public policy who will bring unique visual solutions to the design challenges presented by communicating complex issues. Teams are encouraged to apply.

The deadline for applications is August 29, 2017.
