Around forty million people are living with HIV throughout the world - and that number increases in every region every day. Ignorance and prejudice fuel the spread of a preventable disease and we'd like you to join us in a global effort to help put an end to HIV and prejudice by using your creativity and artistic skills.
We're inviting submissions which promote awareness of the way in which HIV affects individuals and families, or which promote positive messages of safer sexual health and relationships. We'll be selecting winners to receive exclusive deviantART World Aids Day Goodies to commemorate the event.
Think about what World AIDS Day means to you. Maybe you are affected by HIV or know someone who is. Maybe you work along side people who are HIV positive and have a story to tell. Whatever your preferred medium of expression, be it poetry, prose, digital art or photomanipulations, pixel art, flash, traditional art, artisan craft or photography, we'd like you to participate.
Your entry must be a finished piece of artwork which intends to raise awareness of HIV or AIDS, commemorating this years World Aids Day. This year, the theme this year is "Stop AIDS, Keep the Promise" , and this should be a factor in your deviation.
All entries must be submitted to the World Aids Day 2006 Contest Category - (Community Projects > Contests > World Aids Day 2006).Your work must meet with all existing deviantART guidelines regarding copyright and etiquette.
We'll be giving away exclusive deviantART commemorative goodies for outstanding submissions, as chosen by fourteenthstar, Moonbeam13 and respective Gallery Directors.
The contest will run from 1st December to 7th December. You will not be able to submit any deviations until the opening date.
