Design for Life: Graphic Design contest for Organ Donation

MOHAN Foundation welcomes you to a unique graphic design contest for organ donation - DESIGN FOR LIFE! This contest aims to raise awareness and promote the importance of organ donation through creative and visually appealing designs. Your task is to create a compelling graphic design that effectively communicates the significance of organ donation, encourages people to become organ donors, and dispels any misconceptions surrounding the topic.

MOHAN (Multi Organ Harvesting Aid Network) Foundation is an NGO that has been promoting Organ Donation since 25 years and it took up this cause at a time when no one had heard of it and it was considered a taboo topic. 25 years later, India continues to have one of the lowest organ donation rates in the world, mainly attributable to lack of awareness and myths surrounding Organ donation.

We invite all Students and Professionals of Graphic Design to participate in this Contest, put their creativity to use and help create powerful Artwork on Organ donation that can be used by the Foundation to motivate the public. Join us in our effort to normalize the conversation around organ donation, because Organ donation has the power of saving 8-9 lives and healing many others through donation of tissues such as eyes, skin, etc.

Graphic Design Students and Professionals


The theme of your design should revolve around organ donation, emphasizing its life-saving impact and the need for individuals to register as organ donors.

Incorporate symbols related to organ donation, such as hearts, hands, organ illustrations, or medical icons. Ensure that your design is clear, legible, and suitable for various mediums, including online platforms, print media, and merchandise.

Your design should include a strong and impactful message about the importance of organ donation. This can be achieved through text, taglines, or a combination of visuals and words.

Use colors that are visually appealing and convey the emotions of hope, compassion, and life. Feel free to experiment with color combinations but ensure that the text remains easily readable.

Submit your design in a high-resolution digital format (JPEG, PNG, or PDF) that can be easily viewed and evaluated by the judges.

Create original designs and avoid using copyrighted material without proper permission.

Participants can submit multiple designs for consideration, but each entry must be unique and standalone.

If you choose to include text in your design, ensure it is in a language that has broad accessibility and understanding.

Send your design(s) via email to [email protected] along with your name, registration number, contact information, and a brief description of your concept for the design.
