Y’all. I’ve made it. If you didn’t know by now, my two passions/interests/whatever you want to refer to them as are Sexual Health and Communications. When i saw that One Condom was doing their annual design contest, I decided to finally enter. The winner gets a cash prize, a years supply of their condom, and 5k condoms to a non-profit of their choice.
You can submit up to 3 designs so I frantically decided what would be something I would be proud of but also would appeal to the masses (and judges – mainly the judges). I decided on a Netflix reference, something dedicated to consent, and naturally eggplants (hint hint that’s what the kids these days use to represent a penis).
Well, One decided that they loved the consent and eggplants and I got an e-mail yesterday announcing my championship – ok I got 2 of the 8 runner up slots but whatever.
AGAIN I WON. DID YOU READ THAT. Ekk! I’m beyond excited. I will have my designs and name be on literal thousands of condoms around the world. So right before someone is either satisfied or disappointed (put protected against STIs/pregnancy/etc), they will see something I’ve made. It’s a little weird but I would not have it any other way.
