The contest

They will choose the three designs that better show the SCI spirit. The International Secretariat of SCI will conduct a first quality check, and if more than three designs qualify, the winners will be chosen via a poll, shared on social media and among SCI organisations.

The winners will be rewarded with their book “Words about Deeds”, the publication that collects stories of the 100 years of SCI and volunteering for peace.


  1. The design should represent SCI and the 100th anniversary.
  2. The design should include a maximum of 4 different colors.
  3. The design must be submitted as a vector file (EPS, AI, or SVG) or PSD file with a minimum of 300dpi, plus a jpeg/png copy for promotion.
  4. Include a title/caption to your work of art.
  5. The design is created on a voluntary basis and if chosen, the artist will allow SCI network organisations to use the design for merchandise, free of charge. In turn, SCI will give visibility to the designs and artists on its communication channels and always credit the artist in relation to the design.
