Love Your Body

Leave a comment

The NOW Foundation hosts an annual Love Your Body Poster contest.

Here is what they say about the contest:

The grand prize winning poster will be used as part of a national campaign to challenge the media’s use of violent, drug-addicted, starved, surgically-enhanced images of women and to fight against industries that profit from women’s dissatisfaction with their bodies.

The deadline for entries this year is December 1st 2009.

Take a look at the 2009 winners for inspiration and then start conspiring about the poster that YOU are going to enter this December. How fantastic would it be to have a woman from Hamilton win?!
