Thank you to the many of you who submitted a billboard design in our recent contest – we received 42 designs in 2 categories – wow!
We are grateful to our sponsors, Compass Creative and Reformed Perspective Magazine for all they did to make this contest a success.
Many of the submissions this year came from students and we would like to thank the teachers and parents that encouraged the students to make submissions, and for being willing to engage youth on these very important issues.
Next we would like to encourage local ARPA groups and the general public to turn these designs into real-life billboards. We have seen the designs from our contest in 2013 go up in various formats across the country – on billboards, bus benches and even in smaller form as stickers. Each of these methods gives opportunity to discuss important and complex political issues with your friends, family and neighbour. Please consider using one of the designs and contact us at [email protected] and we will help get you a high-resolution file for printing.
