Tides 35th Anniversary Poster Design Contest, winner Laura LarsonCongratulations to Laura Larson, a student at Iowa State University and the winner of the Tides 35th Anniversary Poster Design Contest!  Laura will receive a $500 cash prize and a limited edition run of her poster will be printed in celebration of this momentous year. Please click on her winning design at the right to enlarge it.

We asked Laura to share some of her inspiration with us, and here’s what she has to say:

We as a global community are responsible for standing up to social injustices in any way that we can. Whether a volunteer, an artist, or an advocate, we are all a voice for social justice and our voice along with our actions are a source for positive change.

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.  Please join us in congratulating her and all of the artists who submitted their designs.  Check out the slideshow of other great entries below:
