Sticker Contest!!!


Submit revolutionary (rev.)/radical images which will inspire action and a move toward social justice. The stickers will be printed by The Student Insurgent (see http://uoinsurgent.blogspot.com).

We want art which has a critical anti-oppressive analysis. Submit a short explanation of what this art is trying to convey and how it relates to the rev. Please include any personal narratives which add meaning to the imagery.

Stickers will be displayed with an author statement at the University of Oregon, then selected stickers will be mass printed.

Deadline for submissions:  JANUARY 15th!!!

Conditions:
-Original art  or with permissions.
-Full color preferred, may be B&W
-Roughly 4"x4", it can be slightly larger or smaller (but don't send us a full page image).
-Image may include words/text, but the image should be evocative on its own accord.
-The art must depict either an action or symbol.
-The art should come out of some struggle, resistance to oppression, or to further the rev.

Contest is the best time for the new comers or professionals to have a competitive portfolio. Basically, content is the challenge for the ability of any professional and through this way he is filtered.

I'd rather take my content elsewhere then giving it to the Oregon Insurgent.
