Art Contest Seeks “9-11 Truth for Peace and Justice”

A Call for Art has been issued by the Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance. The theme is "9-11 Truth for Peace and Justice." Winners will receive cash prizes, DVDs, videos, CDs, bundles of Deception Dollars and have their art published. Deadline for entries is June 1st, 2005.
A "Call for Art" has been issued by the Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance who state that the purpose of the art contest is-

"To encourage artists to think deeply and creatively about the defining event of this century, to shine truth on the biggest lies of our time, which have been used to launch immoral, illegal, unjustifiable wars, and to help light the path towards peace and justice."

They believe that- "Art, film, truth, music, courage has birthed the 9-11 Truth Movement, we hope this art contest will encourage people to become more engaged in shaping our collective future, recognizing their own power, and helping us to merge the 9-11 Truth Movement with the Peace and Justice Movements, for the benefit of all people and all life."

They offer over a thousand dollars in cash prizes, many other prizes including DVD, CDs, videos, books, and bundles of "Deception Dollars." The Deception Dollars, have helped fund the 9-11 Truth Movement, and have been passed out at rallies and protests throughout the US; over 6,000,000 are in print, and their image, captured by Reuters and Associated Press are some of most emailed photos on the internet. Deception Dollar artist, Blaine Machan, will be one of the judges. Entries are due by June 1st and will be published on the Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance website and winners art will be published in Global Outlook, and HopeDance magazines, as well as reproduced on posters, buttons, postcards, flyers by the group and the Peace Resource Project for educational and promotional purposes. Co-sponsors include many book publishers, Project Censored, and David Ray Griffin, who has become a soft-spoken challenger to the official 9-11 Commission with his new book- The 9-11 Report- Omissions and Distortions.
