Love Your Body Day is October 19

The NOW (National Organization for Women) Foundation has declared Wednesday, October 19th to be Love Your Body Day.


NOW has already selected a winning Love Your Body poster for 2011, and we reported on it back in March.

If you were thinking of entering a poster in the 2012 contest, then this is your reminder!

The deadline for next year's poster contest is December 3, 2011. Details are here.

Posters should be graphically attractive and use a dynamic message. We especially look for images that demonstrate beauty is not limited by body size, body type, ethnicity, age or physical appearance. The winning posters will be displayed in schools and other public settings, so please consider this when designing your poster.

IMPORTANT: Each entry must include the artist's full name, address, phone number, valid e-mail address and category number on the back of each poster.

Artwork: Poster should be no larger than 9" x 12". The poster must include the words 2012 Love Your Body Campaign and the NOW Foundation web site address, www.nowfoundation.org.

NOW tends to choose artwork depicting thin to average sized bodies. Let's make sure that isn't because it's the only kind of entry they get. (I did manage to find one winner on their website - the general category winner from 2010 - that depicts a larger woman. That's it above.)

I, for one, plan to make at least one entry.
