As some of you may know, prompted by a spate of deaths, The Sydney Morning Herald is running a competition (http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/help-clean-up-sydneys-streets-and-win-2500-in-the-process-20140106-30d9y.html) for a poster that discourages drunken street violence. I've made a poster that I'd like to enter.

The poster contains a photo of a guy's face, which at the moment is one I pulled from the Web, and so for copyright reasons can't use. I can't use myself as a model because I'm too old for the target demographic, and I know no-one suitable. So I'm looking for someone who'd like their picture on the poster.

The text around this picture describes this person as doing the right thing. So it's not like you're making yourself the poster-boy for bad behaviour. Quite the reverse: A role model. The picture is only a small part of the poster -- it's nothing like a "wanted" poster. I'll send the draft poster to interested persons so you can see what I mean.

The only restrictions are that the person be male, look 18-35, and hopefully not so much the pretty boy or wimp that the people being targeted can't identify.

The competition has a $2500 prize, and in the unlikely event that I won I think it'd be fair to give the face model $500.

There are other pictures on the poster, including some "bad guys", who can have their face covered. I'm also looking for people to take these shots.

Please PM me if you're interested. The competition closes on 21 Feb (in two weeks), and I'm hoping to find someone by the 14th.

Thanks.

Mark

As bad as it sounds - and I know that most families if not all wouldn't allow it - but simply they simply need to show a picture of the dead body of the kid in his hospital bed........think of the impact that would have....

Rugby, I'm looking for adults who can make their own decisions, and who shouldn't be afraid of being published as a positive role model.

Possibly, but it didn't work for anti-speeding ads.This (http://www.advertising.nsw.gov.au/campaigns/speeding-no-one-thinks-big-you) however did.

In a fit of rage, noone is going to stop and think about the consequences of their actions. An ad might deter some young boys from shenanigans but king hits are so much more...and definitely not a new "fad".
