Two leading platforms from different parts of the crowdsourcing world are teaming with Crowdsourcing Week to show off the industry's potential to not only create, but also to support and empower developing communities around the world at the same time.

Leading graphic design and crowd creativity platform 99designs has announced a design competition to solicit Singapore-themed art for each day of the 5-day long Crowdsourcing Week in Singapore - the first global event on crowdsourcing, open innovation and crowdfunding, June 3 - 7. The themes follow the main topics at the event: 1) Government & Urban Planning 2) Marketing and Design 3) Technology and Healthcare 4) Crowdfunding and New Business models and 5) Tourism and Entertainment.

Renowned designer Jesse Thomas, the CEO and Founder of JESS3 will pick the winning design in each of the five categories. Thomas has been recognized for a unique creative style that specializes in data visualization, social strategy and visual storytelling.

Crowdsourcing Week will produce the five winning designs on official event t-shirts. All proceeds from the sales of event t-shirts and merchandise will go to Kiva to fund micro-enterprise and micro-lending projects in developing countries.

Epirot Ludvik Nekaj, CEO and co-founder at Crowdsourcing Week says, “The Crowd Design for Social Good effort is part of Crowdsourcing Week’s commitment to drive 1% of company profits to social good around the world. We are deeply committed to extend sustainable support to Kiva projects through small loans and to create a revolving fund from Kiva credit we earn. We would like to invite our partners to join our mission."

Lauren Chow, who heads partner relations at 99designs says, “We are excited to partner with Kiva and Crowdsourcing Week to support innovative social enterprise projects around the globe, and we know our community of graphic designers, who live in 192 countries, will be just as enthusiastic. This campaign is the perfect example of joining forces to crowdsource for social good."
