Deportation of non-violent people is cruel and inhumane. To raise awareness of this immoral policy, we at Open Borders: The Case want a logo or symbol that conveys the message “No More Deportations.” The sponsors of the contest are offering $150 to the person who produces the logo that we think bests communicates this message. Payment will be made via PayPal.
Criteria: We imagine that this will be used on posters, stickers, iron-on patches, or flyers. It should be recognizable in a small version like a sticker or a large version like a banner. The winning entry should clearly be about deportation specifically and not a broader issue, like immigration.
Submission: Anyone in the world may submit an entry as long as it is in good taste and consistent with the message. The contest will run during July and August 2015. Interested persons should join the Open Borders Action Group on Facebook to post an entry, or send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The sponsors reserve the right to delete submissions made in poor taste.

Please re-consider this. Designers are workers like any others. If you get 30 submissions to this and accept one logo, then you’ve essentially made 29 designers work for free. Instead, please consider locating a designer by putting out an ad or asking to see people’s existing portfolios and then select ONE of those designers to work for you, for guaranteed pay.
I missed the part of the blog post where they’re chaining designers to a desk and forcing them to design logos…
