World Aids Day is held on December 1st, and internationally recognised as an opportunity for people to unite in the fight against HIV and AIDS. This year, the theme this year is Stop AIDS, Keep the Promise.

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.

Contest Guidelines:
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.

Prizes:

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.

Good luck!

NB - Please note that due a technical error the gallery was not open for submissions on the 1st. This has now been rectified and you should submit to the following gallery- (Community Projects > Contests > World Aids Day 2006)

So the winners have been announced.

I only found out because someone messaged me a link - I expected it to show up in my message center like the contest announcement had.

Anyone have any idea why it wouldn't have gone to my message center?

an idea too late: A pregnant lady (age of 20ish) lying on a metal examining table (like at a hospital). A guy sits next to her (the "father" of the unborn child) and he has his hand on her swollen belly. He is crying. Maybe you could have a indication that the woman is dead too (like having one of those machines that beep and make a straight line on the screen when the heart stops). And have the text "She dies too." or something along those lines it could mean the woman or the unborn child. and then "Stop AIDS now" or something. Have the main color as red so that things are highlighted or something of that sort in red (perhaps having the other colors duller and the reds brighter?).
yeah i just had this idea but don't think i can create something as good as others could do. You can just credit the idea by just saying "Idea by Aminata" or something small like that.

This is seeming weird - I've never entered a contest here so I don't know how long it usually takes. ....But I didn't think that many people participated in this project.

Is it possible that they created a post about it that didn't properly appear?

$chix0r said the results are probably going to be known "today". But that was yesterday. ;)

So I suppose the correct answer is: any minute now.
