The Hands off my Design competition invites submissions of posters and videos (that can be used as guerrilla/viral marketing tools) aimed at illustrating the dangers and negative effects of counterfeits and illegal copies.
The entries should consist of two items: one video and one poster. The poster should relate to the key message of the video submitted and should also include a clear link to www.handsoffmydesign.com. Any text or audio in the video and the poster should be in English.
The works will be evaluated on how well they fit the purpose of being used as a guerrilla/viral marketing tool and their effectiveness in showing the dangers and negative effects of counterfeits and illegal copies.
