Refugee-inspired art scoops €1,000 prize

Refugio Mnchen Kunstwerkstatt is a German charity offering refugee children access to art workshops – visual arts, music, dance, theatre and writing. Theresa Gtschl is working with the foundation as part of her bachelor thesis. When Corbis offered a €1,000 donation to a charity chosen by the winner of their Make Your Mark competition, she joined forces with her sister to create what would ultimately be the winning entry.

"We wanted to embed the impression of a childlike world and fantasy," Theresa says of the design, "and we like the metaphor of travelling to a creative, fantastic world. The boat represents escape and also boat refugees, which some of the children actually are."
