World No Tobacco Day 2012 Poster Contest

Készíts plakátot a WHO május 31.-ei dohányzás elleni világnapja alkalmából!

The World Health Organization (WHO) selects 'tobacco industry interference' as the theme of the next World No Tobacco Day, which will take place on Thursday, 31 May 2012.

The campaign will focus on the need to expose and counter the tobacco industry's brazen and increasingly aggressive attempts to undermine the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) because of the serious danger they pose to public health.

Pályázati határidő: 2012. május 10.

Tobacco use is one of the leading preventable causes of death. The global tobacco epidemic kills nearly 6 million people each year, of which more than 600,000 are people exposed to second-hand smoke. Unless we act, it will kill up to 8 million people by 2030, of which more than 80% will live in low- and middle-income countries.

Last year, Kick Butts, Take Names held its first celebration in observation of the World Health Organization’s "World No Tobacco Day." We call our celebration "World No Tobacco [Abuse] Day" as a reminder that tobacco is neither friend nor The Enemy. We believe it is our disconnection from ourselves and from one another than stands in the way of our freedom.

We are looking for a poster to draw attention to this date again this year, in this spirit. It is important that the poster uses no negative or fear-based images, that it incorporates our heart and fist logo, and that it is a powerful representation of the life-changing, life-saving, buttkicking work of Kick Butts, Take Names, changing the way the world sees and responds to tobacco.

Entrants may gain a greater understanding of our work by searching (and liking) Kick Butts, Take Names and Nicci Tina, the Ambassador of Buttkicking, on Facebook, and YouTube. Deadline is 10 May 2012 to allow adequate time for judging, and for exposure of the winning poster prior to the 31 May date.

There is no entry fee.


All are eligible to enter.


There is no money prize. The winner will receive international exposure via our ever-growing community of Facebook friends, and a signed copy of Kick Butts, Take Names, retail value: $25. This will be a labor of love, and buttkicking social change.
