For over a decade, the ONE Design Contest has given artists and advocates a platform to express their views on sexual health. Winning designs are featured on ONE’s signature, round condom wrappers. ONE will also donate a total of 50,000 condoms to the artists’ health organizations of choice.
A combination of voting by ONE staff and a panel of guest judges determines the Top 50 Finalist designs, which are then voted on by the public. Public Voting helps determine the Grand Prize Winner, Runner-Up Winner and Honorable Mentions. ONE staff also selects extra Favorites called Staff Picks.
Think you got what it takes to design ONE? Submit your art.
GRAND PRIZE WINNER
A huge THANK YOU to our three guest judges who used their keen eyes and spectacular sense of style to help us select the winners for the Winter Contest of our ongoing ONE® Design Contest!
