Vote For Your Favorite Chicken-Awareness Ad!

PETA recently teamed up with an Australian advertising agency to hold a contest—for the Young Guns International Advertising Award—for brilliant ad minds around the globe to design a pro-vegetarian ad focusing on chickens—inquisitive, interesting animals who are as intelligent as some mammals, including cats, dogs, and even primates. But the more than 9 billion chickens raised in factory farms each year in the U.S. never have the chance to do anything that is natural and important to them. Click here to learn more about chickens.
More than 700 entries were received from design students, advertising professionals, and artists around the world. The winning ad, titled “Your Parents Do It,” came from Jack Bagdadi and Billy Custer of Hallandale, Florida. The ad was part of a series called “Don’t Block It Out,” in which readers are led to think about things they otherwise might prefer to ignore—in this case, the way chickens are treated in factory farms. Read the full text of the ad and see the first, second and third place winners below.

See the Winners and VOTE for the finalists in the PETA contest!

If this sounds confusing, it is! I think that the YGIAA chose their top 3 winners, and now PETA is asking people to vote for their favorite ad.

Anyways, they are all funny and amazing so check them out!
