We are looking for UIC student artists to design posters to help reduce violence against students and get the word out about the resources on campus.

So what's the deal?
There are 4 different posters to design and each first place submission will receive $500. Students must submit at least 2 posters and can submit up to 4. We are looking for posters to increase awareness of the UIC Campus Advocacy Network, consent, abuse in relationships and cyberstalking.

The money sounds good but when do I have to get it in?
Monday, April 19th by 5:00 p.m.

Who is eligible?
The contest is open to all UIC students, except those students who are employed by the Office of Women's Affairs or work with the office as Peer Educators.

So what do I have to do?
Contestants must submit at least two poster designs, one for the Campus Advocacy Network and the other for one of the three anti violence campaign. Contestants are permitted to submit designs for the Campus Advocacy Network poster and all three anti violence campaigns for a total of 4 posters.

What do these posters say?
