For nearly 20 years the company ONE has hosted a design contest for their community to create their very own condom artwork on their trademarked round wrappers. During the contest, people design up to three condom wrappers for the chance to win a cash prize, a year’s supply of condoms with their design, a donation of ONE condoms to a health organization or school, and for their designs to be manufactured and sold by ONE. A combination of judges and public voting determine the finalists and winners.
Participants have complete creative ability to design however and whatever they would like as long as they include the ONE logo somewhere in the final design. Previous Winners range from punny one liners, safe sex promotional graphics, unrelated illustrations, and more.
I found this contest opportunity through Instagram and decided to enter a design. I submitted two designs titled "Going Pro" and "Blow Me". Both of my designs made it to the final round of 25 designs who who voted on publicly. At the end of the voting period my "Going Pro" design won Honorable Mention and I was rewarded a cash prize, a donation of 200 condoms of behalf of myself to a local non-profit, and 365 condoms with my design that will be manufactured and sent to me.
