BOSTON, Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ONE®, the leading specialty brand of premium condoms in North America, today announced the ONE Pride Design Contest. Amidst all the exciting progress in marriage equality and other gay rights this year, ONE wants to give its community the opportunity to express their feelings creatively by updating its popular crowd-sourced wrapper design mix. Experts and novices alike are invited to design and submit artwork for ONE's unique round condom wrapper that reflects the theme of gay pride and equality. Design submissions are being accepted from August 23rd to November 23rd, 2013. Entry and contest information can be found at: www.onecondoms.com/design/contest.
"Our design contests are a big part of the company's personality," said Davin Wedel, founder and CEO of ONE. "Because our products cater to so many different types of people, our contests are widely appealing and bring out the artist in anyone, from amateurs to professional designers. We are excited that this theme has the potential to draw out sexy and edgy designs, while also acknowledging the incredible recent events around gay rights."
The design contest will post all qualified submissions on the ONE website when voting is opened to the public. A panel of guest judges will evaluate the top highest-voted 25 designs and select five winners. Winning designers receive a cash prize and a donation of 5000 condoms in the designer's name to the charity of his or her choice -- topped off with a year's supply of condoms featuring the winner's design!
Since 2004, ONE has involved its community with creating and selecting the designs on many of its condom wrappers. The Pride Mix is accompanied by other themes, including the Universal, Classic Select, and Urban mixes, which have together generated thousands of submissions and millions of votes, and strengthened the bond between ONE and its loyal community.
