Poster Art Contest Winners

And the Poster Art winners are… 

Judging this contest was just plain hard–so many great submissions to review but we have finally settled on the best. Our criteria was based on simplicity, clean lines, & the effectiveness/closeness to old school poster propaganda. We also took into account evergreen ability and the use of slogans rather than quotes. All of the posters submitted will be shared daily on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts over the next two months and the winners will get a shout out on the BitcoinNotBombs Instagram account, our Facebook group and AntiwarNews backup Twitter account. Follow along on all the above social media feeds for updates, future contests and giveaway details. is blessed to have so many talented artists as supporters of our work and of peace. We have been talking about turning some of the art from this contest into T-Shirts and posters for sale and for future giveaways.

We have 10 Honorable mentions who will receive an swag pack including an assortment of books, pens and stickers.

These were not easy to pick either but some were a no-brainer. First up Was Don Nash of Salt Lake City. While one image in particular caught our eye, Don never stopped submitting images during the duration of the contest. 27 in total and you can see all of them along with all the other posters on the entire post here. Don’s are stacked at the bottom and you can also check out his art portfolio site here.

Won, Don Nash

Honorable mention #2. Kitty, Simple, a great take on a classic image yet honest.

I want you to have democracy or ill kill you.

Honorable mention #3. While the image is interesting this one is a take on a well know quote from the late co-founder Justin Raimondo. Thank you Natalie Fawn Danelishen.

War is not Patriotic

Honorable mention #4 Niketas Paloyannides, “Some real future” The use of the clock is powerful. Time is something we here in the peace community think about a lot. We just might be running out.

Honorable mention #5. Josh Everson “That Shining Beacon”. Do you ever get the impression that the very money in your hand is directly responsible for war?

Honorable mention #6. Jan R. Weinberg “Fear Sells” And the media is perhaps even more responsible for the troubles of this world than the politicians.

Honorable mention #7. Edgar Cards :Bring the Troops home” Simplicity, that’s it, that’s what we want.

Honorable mention #8. David Timothy Holdsworth “Repent.” Very simple.


Honorable mention #9. Danny Hellman. “Two parties one agenda” We shied away from some of the images of the current president for evergreen ability but this one hits home what we have said for years, They are the same.

Two Parties One Agenda
Two Parties One Agenda

Honorable mention #10. Last but never least is long time Antiwar supporter, graphic designer and BitcoinNotBombs co-founder Davi Barker. “Stop Wars” Pop culture references are powerful and this one has a long history in libertarian circles. This image and slogan is what in many ways was the impatience for the creation of the Bitcoin Not Bombs logo.
