Our May Art Jam in the Dublin studio was a special collaboration between our 2D Committee and our Green Bag Committee with the theme of Climate Change.
Our Green Bag Committee endeavour to reduce the carbon footprint of the studio and help promote eco-awareness amongst Brown Bagger's through recycling, usage of sustainable products, reduction of energy usage and many more upcoming initiatives (keep your eyes peeled for updates). They wanted to get our artists active and thinking about Climate Change and sponsored this Art Jam with sustainable prizes for the winner and runner ups!
There were a huge amount of submissions for this one including an animated gif entry! You can swipe through the submissions below to view our full gallery:
The winning entry was voted on by our Dublin studio members and *drumroll* please, has been awarded to Assistant Art Director Lydia Sanchez who won her very own plant and Sprout Pencil Box full of plantable pencils!
Congrats to Lydia and also to runners up Anabela Faria, Gavin O'Donnell, Stephen O'Connor and Conor Gillespie who all received a Sprout Pencil Box!
We hope this Art Jam gets you thinking about what you can do to help in the fight against Climate Change.
