Community Poster Contest- Win $1,000!
March 16 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The HereTogether homeless services coalition needs a community poster, and we are asking YOU to show us your creativity and commitment to helping support people experiencing homelessness.
The Portland Metro area is experiencing a homeless crisis. This May, our community will have a chance to transform our response to chronic homelessness and improve the lived reality of tens of thousands of people now without a safe, stable home.
We need YOUR help to raise social and political awareness of the campaign. We envision a campaign with small businesses and homes proudly displaying a “We Are HereTogether” sign to help raise awareness. This is your opportunity to help with the campaign and impress your friends with the viral* replication of your creativity. Consider these examples of social and political movement signs (see detail link below), and then come up with your own iconic design. (*don’t worry, not that type of viral)
Self-esteem, the warm fuzzy feeling of helping others, the gratitude of many, public credit for your design, and cold hard cash ($1,000. No, really, $1,000.)
The poster must include the phrase “We are HereTogether.” We will post all appropriate posters online for public voting. It’s totally fair to get your friends and family to help you win the $1,000.
We welcome everyone, housed and unhoused, to design a “We Are HereTogether” poster that will be used all over the Portland Metro area to encourage people to transform the lives of our most vulnerable community members — AND be entered to win $1,000! Deadline for submission is MARCH 16.
