Point of Sale Tobacco Marketing Photo Contest
October 11 - November 7
The Surgeon General says that exposure to retail marketing encourages smoking and undermines quit attempts. According to the Federal Trade Commission’s reports on marketing expenditures for cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, and e-cigarettes, in 2020, the tobacco industry spent $7.3 billion dollars making their presence known in the retail environment.
Each year, you help capture the tobacco industry’s marketing tactics at the point of sale. These images are all added to our media gallery, which is a resource for tobacco control advocates seeking to educate decision makers about issues in the tobacco retail environment, and they are crucial to educating the public and furthering the success of state and local tobacco control efforts that seek to reduce tobacco industry influence at the point of sale.
Our contest this year will run from October 10th – November 7th! See this year’s categories, contest rules, and FAQs here.
