DP Poster Contest For Ron Paul 2012?

Hey Guys,

Would you be down to host a poster/artwork contest in order to show support for the good Dr?

In our journey for liberty, we have come across so many talented artists and it would be amazing to unlock some of that creativity again in order to help the campaign.

What say you??

The War/Peace poster

would be a good one to use but, just the Peace side. :)

ona my favorites...

this was my desktop background, before my old computer crapped out:

i know its a ripoff of a john lennon/ yoko anti-war campaign, but it looks good and still speaks.

I think you have an excellent idea

and think winter time is a great time for people to work on something like this.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

I have an idea for a Ron Paul product,

but I need a good full body caricature of Ron. If I had one, I would make & sell the product & give all the profits to grassroots campaigning. It's also important that Ron truly throws his hat in the ring.

I like it!

...indeed

I might actually be willing

I might actually be willing to offer $1000 to the winner of the contest.

That could garner some interest.

We'll accept the offer lol.

Undo what Wilson did

Not a bad idea

But I think any $ we can spare should be put towards the campaign when it's time for us to donate.

Perhaps the winner's donation choice/s

could be included?

Yeah good idea

I know I would certainly be donating it to RP if he announces his run, but I'm sure most of it would put it towards his campaign in some way or another. So It's definitely an excellent idea

Thanks, it is a great idea. I propose it back to you.

I've simply got too much cake on my plate to put another piece on. Please take the ball and run with it. That is what the DP is for. If you involve me, I'm going to be a bottleneck, and I hate it when that happens, and so does everyone else.

If you want to put a thread together, and come up with some rules, solicit prizes, come up with a deadline, etc., that would be wonderful.

People can upload their creations to imgur.com, and post links to them in the comments of your thread. Voting can be done with: http://www.micropoll.com/

Anyway that's how I'd do it if I were charged with the task.

What do you say?

Looking forward to the contest!
Best,
Michael

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

It would be my pleasure Michael

I will have to do some thinking as how to best implement the contest - Actually I don't think it should be a contest per se.
Perhaps more of a depository of works which others can use freely for campaigning purposes. - This would be priceless
Also I have server space I can donate should the need arise.

A couple of quick questions however,

1) Seeing as this is your site - would you have any requests/ insights?

2) Do you think that we could get some support from Campaign for Liberty guys? If this were to be an official DP event/ could I reference your name/site if I were to correspond with them?

3) If I were to promote externally can I use the DP name? say on youtube /facebook? - Perhaps we could get a dedicated thread on the frontpage when the time comes?

Also I have a full docket right now so I would not be able to start until next week sometime. -But i'm sure there is no immediate rush.

Thank You in advance Michael.

Ok

In answer to your questions,

1) Yes, maybe a depository would be a better idea? Maybe you could set up a community flickr account that people could upload the images to. It would have to be monitored so that people / spammers/ trolls don't upload porn, etc.

2) I don't know if you could get support from C4L; you'd have to ask them. I'm a little uncomfortable having people use my name as a reference if I don't know them. All I know about you is that you're an entity with a screen name called "rustle," and no offense, but that isn't much to go on. Again, no offense, but in the past I've been burned by anonymous screen names by being too trusting, so what I'm saying (sadly) is that I've learned my lesson and I'm more cautious now than I was before.

3) When it comes time to promote it, it might be okay to use the DP name, depending on what you're doing. Sorry for all the dancing around here, but see #2.

Assuming it follows the general rules of keep it clean / be respectful / nothing shady, I think it should be fine.

Thanks. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Thank You for the reply Michael

Hi Michael,

I just sent you a message via the contact tab in your personal page on this site detailing some of your concerns.

would we be able to proceed via email for the remainder of this project?

I am very keen to help with this issue.

Thank you for your time.
