World AIDS Day Poster Contest

From: WADSJ (World AIDS Day, San Jose) Event Committee

Every year, on December 1st the world comes together to commemorate World AIDS Day. As determined by the United Nations program on AIDS, the theme for 2008 continues to place the emphasis on Leadership: "Stop AIDS, Keep the Promise."

On a local level, the WADSJ Event Committee is busy making preparations. We are pleased to announce our local World AIDS Day event will be held this year in the beautiful glass Rotunda at San Jose City Hall.

Also, for the first time, the committee is actively soliciting the engagement of community artists. In the spirit of creative unity and compassionate activism, we are calling all artists to participate in a poster design contest. The design parameters are wide open.

For instance, you may submit a logo design to be incorporated into the poster. Or, you may create a full poster background. You may address this years leadership theme, or focus on World AIDS Day in general. You will not need to incorporate text at this stage of poster design. However, please be aware that your artwork will be used in conjunction with text, and may be later utilized in any number of promotional layouts,(brochure, postcards, etc.)

Other than the honor of having your artwork showcased on this years promotional material, the winner will also be awarded a brand new iPod! Naturally, the recipient will be allowed to choose his/her new iPod from an array of rainbow colors!

Submission DEADLINE: October 3, 2008

Please submit your design electronically, preferably in jpg format, to jolynnotto@yahoo.com

For more information or further inquiries, please contact Jo-Lynn Otto at the above address.
