Counter Tobacco’s 2014 Photo Contest Winners!
We asked our audience to submit photos of tobacco industry marketing at the point of sale, and were impressed by the breadth and creativity of the photos submitted. Beyond just the contest, we hope these photos will be used to continue POS advocacy work.
Congratulations to all our winners and many thanks to all who participated! Out of a record 92 image submissions, winners have been chosen in 8 categories of tobacco industry activities at the point of sale (plus a fan favorite!):
Grand Prize Winners:
Two great examples – one showing a common youth-friendly character placed near a tobacco display which is easily viewable and within reach of youth. It even looks like a candy display! Isn’t the other ironic? This sign at a Circle K invites CVS customers to buy tobacco products at their store. We applaud CVS for the decision to stop selling tobacco products and wish more stores would do the same. Tsk, tsk, Circle K!
