The recent tragedy in Newtown, CT has brought national attention to the issue of gun control: what types of weapons are available, how they end up in the wrong hands, and how to prevent future tragedies from occurring. The list seems to be growing faster now: Columbine, Fort Hood, Tucson, Aurora, Oak Creek and now Newtown. It's time for us to step up and do our part. The NRA and those who defend the status quo are hyper-organized with newsletter, conferences, and even posters. It's up to us to exceed their efforts and show that we're serious about reducing gun violence in America.
We're launching a collection of gun control posters with posters from artists of all skill sets and backgrounds. We're hoping that the collection is as diverse and expressive as the artists we're reaching out to but would also ask that the following guidelines be observed.
For every poster sold you will receive 40% of all revenue. The remaining 60% will be split between the Creative Action Network and our campaign partner organizations.
If you have any questions or need feedback on your work, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
