Depict the ‘prophet’ and win a prize
In the comments section of a piece I posted on May 13 – ‘IHEU condemns slaying of blogger‘ – ‘Brummie’ wrote ‘Draw the Prophet Competition anyone?’
The idea that the Freethinker should run the contest was supported by ’Marky Mark’.
So I began contemplating such a competition – then discovered that Atheist Republic had already set the wheels in motion for an international “Draw Muhammad Contest” – the closing date for entries being June 20, 2015.
The goal is to be outrageously creative and make a strong statement with your piece.
If we can get at least 25 serious entries, the winner will get an Atheist Republic shirt and the winning image will be used in an official Atheist Republic meme, designed by our amazing graphic design team.
The meme will be translated into Arabic and possibly all of our other languages as well.
The winner of the contest will be announced on July 1st, 2015 on the Atheist Republic site as well as on its Facebook page, which is already starting to attract furious responses, such as this one from … Mohamed:
Perhaps you should make a painting of hell as well, because that’s where you’re all going to motherfuckers.
Of course, we will also reproduce the best entries.
This link will take you to the page that contains the rules, and allows one to upload entries.
