Any idea what it is that they're looking for? I couldn't see anything, other than the title of 'Get the Gig'. I guess that should be the theme - auditions/try-outs...?


If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

Marlboro Black? Is that their way of letting you know the color your lungs will be by using their product? Yikes.

It will only let smokers in. You have to register.


Thank you. bw!

I couldn't even view the page. It required that I register. Register to something, just to read a webpage about a contest - no thank you.

I think it's a bad link. We should be able to view the photo contest page without registering first.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Hahahaha....This is so conflict of interest. What if I enter it using photos about anti-smoking? Would my work be rejected because it is against the corporate interests?

I agree generally, but in this case it's all the regulations and liability. The terms are that it's only open to smokers who are of smoking age and they make you sign in to verify that.

I didn't sign up either, I'm just saying it's not really their fault....

[GIFS ARE NOT RENDERED IN QUOTES]

Think like an art director managing an ad campaign.

Study their old ad photographs, see who they appealed to, and craft a catchy but unique image that conveys the current direction of the company. You want the iconic picture that communicates the company's goal. That's what ad execs seek.

Us Aussies would have to back a fair way...tobacco advertising was banned in Australia over 20 years ago!
