CBC Radio-Canada Propaganda Poster Contest

What if you believed in a cause and you wanted everyone else to come on board? How would you do it? How would you sell it? Whatever your method, you would probably be engaging in the creation of PROPAGANDA.

CBC Radio-Canada is challenging secondary and post-secondary students to be our new message makers.  Choose a cause, perhaps one that is near and dear to your heart, like animal rights, or better food in the school cafeteria, or perhaps global warming or protecting the environment. And then create your own persuasive pitch, your own ‘propaganda campaign’.

Propaganda is a form of communication that tries to persuade people to support a view or a cause.  It uses words and pictures in compelling ways to sway opinion and influence attitudes.  To some, it’s the art of persuasion; to others, it’s a “black art” that can mislead and deceive. It probably depends a lot on who’s making it!

In this contest, YOU are the PROPAGANDIST !

There are two ways to enter:

Create a propaganda poster or Create a video, no longer than thirty seconds.

All material must be original.  No film, video, drawings or photographs allowed from other sources.

For more information and to learn how to enter, see the CBC Propaganda Poster Contest website.
