US Campaign for Burma request

For the first time ever, we are calling on our members to use their artistic talents to help us spread awareness about Burma. Inspire millions more to join the Free Burma movement by participating in our design contest.

All across Burma, young people are using art and music to resist the regime and share their message of democracy and freedom. We believe that our creative grassroots members can match their efforts and help bring Burma to the attention of the world.

We are asking you to create designs that can move people and capture attention, designs that spark discussions on the street, designs that celebrate the spirit of one of the world's most inspiring freedom movements.

Here's how the contest will work: we will be accepting designs from our members until February 21. Then we will post the designs on our Facebook page and have our grassroots members vote on their favorite designs. The four designs that receive the highest number of "Likes" will be reproduced on t-shirts, stickers, and other campaign materials. Winning artists will receive a $100 prize and a free t-shirt with their design. They will also be recognized on our website.

In Burma, graffiti artists and underground singers are using music and art as a means to communicate their passion for change. Take this opportunity to put your artistic talents to work today and inspire activism through your art.

In solidarity,


Support 1991 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Aung San Suu Kyi and the struggle for freedom and democracy in Burma:
