Political Action Cartoons’ 2012 Draw a Difference Contest is ending on the 25th!
Have you ever wanted to see your art published in a magazine or your local newspaper and know that somehow, in some way, you influenced the election of the President of the United States?
If so, the Draw a Difference 2012 Contest is an opportunity for you to achieve both goals!
Here’s what you need to know:
1. The contest deadline is Tuesday, September 25, 2012 at 11:59pm PT.
2. Participation in the Draw a Difference 2012 Contest is completely free. However, as the success of our goal is entirely dependent on the amount of money we raise and the print space we are able to purchase, we strongly encourage all interested parties to donate generously.
3. All submissions must fit within one of the following three broad categories:
- Why President Obama should be re-elected as President of the United States.
- Why Mitt Romney should not be elected as President of the United States.
- Get out the Vote for Obama!
At my last con, I received a Millard Fillmore dollar coin in my change when I bought a bunch of wine at the concession stand. This led to a poll on whether or not a Fillmore dollar counted as real money. I believe the final vote was 2 for “yes” and 7 for “no.”
