The Make Ugly Contest

Mon May 13, 2013, 12:57 PM
+1

Make Ugly. Get recognition.

What's the ugliest truth about Big Tobacco? truth® wants to find out and you can help. DeviantART is calling for submissions of your ugliest monster, giant, mutant or undead art. Download the facts for inspiration and get in on the ugly action. Winners get cash prizes and will be included as a part of the truth® Artist Collective.

The Facts

Monster

To draw public attention from the dangers of secondhand smoke in 1987, Big Tobacco thought they might try to "create a bigger monster (AIDs)."

Undead

1 in 3 teens who begin smoking eventually die from tobacco-related disease. Not undead. Dead dead.

Giant

A Big Tobacco document shows they worried that publishing that radioactive Polonium-210 is in cigarette smoke would be like "waking a sleeping giant."

Mutant

One tobacco company biologically engineered tobacco plants to have twice the normal level of nicotine. Talk about a mutation.

Step 1

Download the fact pack to get inspired by some ugly truths.

See, I saw the badge and take a deeper meaning than just smoking. (I saw my own perspective.)

Though I do not fully support this, I think this has a good message and the badge, even though it's simple, has a great impact.

I guess ugly truths are better than pretty lies. I'm glad someone's doing this. Contest is over but I think I'm going to create something on the subject anyways.
