NIFTA Divyasha Design Submissions

Project Divyasha – Light & Hope

The Covid-2019 pandemic has lead to widespread losses, both personal and economic across all sections of our society.

Project Divyasha has been created by NIFTA to contribute to the society using creative means and involving the creative minds during this lock-down.

The initial seed-funding is being provided by some senior NIFTA members. You can submit your design creative for T-shirts and Masks. A NIFTA jury will select the best entries, which would be converted into T-shirts and Masks. After meeting the manufacturing cost, the net proceeds would be given largely to benefit those whose livelihoods have been directly impacted by the COVID pandemic. An honorarium would be paid to the contributor of the design (in proportion of the design’s gains), a part of the proceeds will be retained to plough back into other such initiatives.

You can contribute by:

  • Seed funding the initial corpus
  • Submitting your creatives
  • Buying the products
