'Prosperity Illustrated'
Design the Front Cover of a Major Global Report

Call for Artists - Deadline: May 31st, 2013

The Legatum Institute is inviting illustrators to submit their visual take on what it means to be genuinely prosperous. The best three entrants will be awarded top prizes.


The Legatum Prosperity Index™ is a unique global inquiry into wealth and wellbeing, based on the notion that genuine prosperity is about more than just material wealth. The annual publication – read by the world’s leading thinkers and opinion-formers and covered widely in international media – provides a more complete picture of global prosperity than any other tool of its kind. The Index assesses countries based on their performance on a wide range of indicators, including measures of individual wellbeing as well as factors contributing to material wealth. The Index is the centrepiece of the Legatum Institute’s endeavour to gain a profound and multi-faceted understanding of human prosperity.

The Competition - Design the Front Cover of a Major Global Report
