Open Call - Zines on Sustainability



For the Camberwell Student Gallery’s upcoming exhibition on sustainability at UAL and the Climate Crises, we invite all UAL students to participate in an open call of Zines.  

Your zine can contain opinions, attitudes or suggestions towards sustainability. We are looking for practical ideas on the current climate crisis as well as creative designs in any zine format. It can include graphics, writing, typography, photography, illustration. Both digital (via QR code) and physical zines will be accepted. We also welcome creative design in book binding and paper folding. 

To apply: 

  • Email us a digital PDF or clear photos of your zine (however best displays the content).

  • Your name, college, course and year. 

  • A brief description of up to 200 words that describes your zine. 

Please send it to with the title “Sustainable Zine” by the Midnight 15th March 2020. You are welcome to submit more than one zine. 

If selected your Zine will be included in the exhibition, which is part of Campaigns Festival, April 2020. 

Open Call - Illustrated Map 


The Camberwell Student Gallery Committee are collaborating with the Campaigns officer, Amber, to produce a Map that locates sustainable venues and facilities such as vegan food places, recycling centres and charity shops in the Camberwell and Peckham area. 

We are looking for an illustrator/artist currently studying at Camberwell or CCW Foundation who is interested in local sustainability to illustrate this map for an exhibition at Camberwell in April. 

To apply: 

  • Include a portfolio of up to three images of you work.

  • State your name, course of study at Camberwell or CCW Foundation, and your year of study.

  • A short artist statement under 200 words, expressing your interest in this open call and your ideas for your map illustration.

  • If selected, we will send you the research and sustainable locations at Camberwell & Peckham to work from. You do not need to research sustainble venues - we just want to see that you are able to translate this information into an engaging Map illustration.

  • Please email your submission to by Midnight 8th March 2020. Please title your email “Map Open Call”.

We will select the successful applicant basing it on the portfolio submission. They will have three weeks in March to design the map. They will also be paid £200 for 10 hours of work. The map will be part of the Campaigns Festival in April 2020 as well as the Camberwell student gallery’s exhibition on sustainability and the climate crisis at UAL. We are also hoping to digitalise the map to make it accessible and portable.  

Open Call - Sustainable Projects and Designs 


Projects and Designs focused on Sustainability and tackling the Climate Crisis  .

For the Camberwell Student Gallery’s upcoming exhibition on sustainability and the Climate Crisis at UAL, we are inviting all current UAL students to submit sustainable projects and designs to be included in the exhibition. This will also be part of the Campaigns Festival, April 2020.  

We encourage designs that raise awareness of both the environmental issues we face daily and on a global scale. We want to collect an archive of innovative solutions by UAL students in 2020.  

    We are interested in seeing designs and projects that tackle sustainability and the climate crisis from a range of perspectives. There is no right or wrong idea – no correct answer -  we want to see what you are thinking and making!  

Your design:

  • Could be a product / architecture / system / service / community project etc.  It must promote sustainability and resolve an issue we face in contemporary society.  

  • Your design or project could be tried and tested or it could still be at the theory stage. But it should be a realistic design (we do not want to display utopian ideas in this exhibition – we want to showcase works that  really  challenges  the climate crisis and  issues today).  

  • We encourage you to encorporate photos / drawings / illustration / short texts etc. to communicate your design in a single print. You might even want to imbed a QR code in your design so visitors can find out more online.

  • We encourage work to be clear and legible to make it as inclusive and accessible as possible.  

  • If selected your poster will be sustainably printed and exhibited as one A3 print.   

To apply:

  • Email us a sketch-up of your proposed design or a finalised design.

  • You must state your name, year, and course in your application.  If your poster and design is a collaboration, participants must be credited.  

  • Your submission must be the digital version of what you intend to print.  

  • Please send your submission to by midnight 15th  March 2020, please title your email "Poster Open Call".
