This year, the partner UNIQLO will create t-shirts from the winning designs and sell them to raise money for displaced people all across the world!

“Hope away from home” is the theme of the 2023 art competition.


  • The winning design will be chosen, and UNHCR partner UNIQLO will produce it into t-shirts that will be sold to benefit displaced persons all around the world at certain UNIQLO stores (including online stores and other venues determined by UNIQLO and UNHCR). UNIQLO alone shall choose the commercial terms and circumstances pertaining to the best design creations, including but not limited to sales territories, product categories, sizes, prices, or release dates.
  • The UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, will give you special awards and treats if you make it to the finals. Regardless of the uniqueness of the design you submitted, if a comparable design is already publicly accessible outside UNIQLO stores or any other channels, UNHCR may withdraw rewards and/or stop selling t-shirts with the winning design without prior notice.
  • Transfer of the rights to your design
  • The rights to your design, including all intellectual property rights, including the right to represent, reproduce, alter, and adapt the designs for use in any medium, are being transferred to UNHCR when you enter this contest. You also undertake not to assert any moral or intellectual rights against UNHCR and UNIQLO. The design or any portion of it may be used, exploited, modified, published, or merchandised at the discretion of UNHCR and UNIQLO.
  • If you win the competition, UNHCR or UNIQLO may, if they so choose, ask you to sign a separate agreement confirming the transfer of all design rights to UNHCR. If so, you will be required to do so by the deadline set by UNHCR or UNIQLO. Your parent or legal guardian must sign the assignment form on your behalf if you are a minor under the laws of the country in which you reside.
  • Failure to sign and submit the assignment form will not prevent UNHCR from acquiring the rights to the design from the winner or entrant.

  • You must make sure the following: the design you submitted is entirely your original work and has never been used, published in whatever forms for commercial or non-commercial purposes; your submission was not made in someone else’s name or with false information; and you have not entered into an agreement with a third party that violates or breaches any of the terms of this contest or other terms related to the contest that may be outlined from time to time by UNHCR and UNIQLO.
