Inclusive Design Contest | 21-25 March, 2022

Children aged 5 to 13 are invited to create a winning design for the next Zubin Cracker. This is your chance to have your art on over thousands of individual Zubin Crackers, your profile made public and to contribute to Hong Kong’s ethnic minorities at the same time.  

What is the Zubin Cracker? 

The Zubin Cracker is a Christmas Cracker that is sold across Hong Kong during November and December. All proceeds from the sale of the Zubin Crackers go towards The Zubin Foundation's work for Hong Kong’s marginalised ethnic minorities in mental health, support for women and girls and providing jobs and opportunities. Watch a video of the Zubin Cracker in 2021.
