Pittsburgh, PA, USA United States of America

Sleeping your way to the top never looked so good. Come one, come all to Planned Parenthood Western Pennsylvania Action Funds (PPWPAF) fifth annual condom packaging design contest, Stiff Competition, Hollywood: A Hard Act to Follow. In the second year as a national competition, PPWPAF will once again accept condom package designs, following the Hollywood theme, from all over the country. The design contest winner, announced at a gala on May 29, 2003 at The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, will be reproduced into condom packages to be sold to the public.

Stiff Competition is a fun, creative and attention-getting method to address the topic of safe sex and condom use, said PPWPAF President and CEO Kim Evert. We appreciate all the designers who are lending an artistic hand to support our vital message about the reproductive health and rights of women and families throughout the country and the world.

Entering the contest is simple and there is no entry fee. Stiff Competitions official website, www.StiffCompetition.org , offers specific entry information including layout and design requirements and submission methods. Deadline for entries is May 12, 2003.

Additional information about the event, the judges and previous winners are also presented on www.StiffCompetition.org, . The Hollywood themed site includes special sections like The Condom Art page, which sells condoms packaged in previous winners designs, and the Spread the Word section, which offers a variety of e-cards for the visitors sending pleasure.

All proceeds from the competition and gala benefit PPWPAF, an independent, not-for-profit organization formed as the political arm of Planned Parenthood Western Pennsylvania. The Action Fund exists to preserve and expand public policy in favor of reproductive rights and healthcare. These goals are achieved by increasing public awareness of the importance of such healthcare and supporting elected representatives who share the ideals of reproductive freedom.
