Contest: design an empowering billboard for NYC!

By August 1, 2011 One Comment

You know those terrible American Apparel billboards? Or those totally skeezy, greasy Calvin Klein ones? Or any of the ones that basically make women out to be sex toys? Do you hate those? Take action!

SPARK Summit, in conjunction with Women’s Therapy Center Institute and Endangered Bodies, are sponsoring a billboard design contest seeking positive, empowering images and messages for women and girls. The winning design will be displayed on a prominent New York City billboard, talking back directly to the overtly sexualized advertisements that dot the New York City skyline. Check out the details and submit your design or design idea by August 15!
