Effervescent is looking for talented young creatives to take on a paid creative commission

If you’re a stylist, photographer or film-maker and want to get paid to make some beautiful creative work over the summer – all for an amazing cause – then this commission is for you.

Effervescent  is looking for talented young creatives to take on a paid creative commission for this year’s Lonely Not Alone campaign.

Effervescent, working in partnership with Co-op Foundation, wants to commission four pieces of creative work for our Lonely, Not Alone campaign 2020.

This is a campaign generated in collaboration with children, teens, and young people. All of the ideas, including the initial insights about loneliness and this year’s campaign strategy, have been created with young people aged 11 – 25.

To make this campaign authentic and meaningful for young people in the UK, Effervescent think it’s important that young voices come through the process at every step of the way, and especially in their hero content. They realise that the Covid lockdown has been a huge setback for young people who are still developing their careers in the creative industries. Effervescent hope that these four commissions can help a little with opportunity to be creative, financial support, and a CV boost.
