|CODEPINK & National Priorities Project Invite You to Enter the Bring Our War $$ Home Shareable Image Contest!
- Set your creativity free to express your frustration with the money spent on war and militarism instead of human needs.

Follow this simple guideline:
- Create an image that visually and viscerally contrasts the cost of some aspect (weapons system, overseas bases, military marching bands, etc.) of US militarism with unmet/underfunded human needs! When people feel they are more likely to act.
- See example below (CODEPINK's most shared image ever) - but feel free to use your own creativity in design.
- Open to all ages and all nationalities.
- Create a shareable graphic (JPEG format only) to contrast US war/militarism/surveillance expenses with an unmet/underfunded human need.
- All facts (such as cost of the F-35 jet, or number of US children living below the poverty line) must be sourced with a URL (such as http://nationalpriorities.org/tradeoffs/041713/). Entries will be fact-checked by judges.
- Must use some color pink in the design.
- Optional: you may include 1 hashtag in your design.
