Photo Contest

Participate in ANDVSA’s Photo Contest for Sexual Assault Awareness Month and be entered to win a $100 Amazon Giftcard!

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Show your support by participating in our Photo Contest. It’s easy! Here’s how to participate:

1. Take a photo of one of the three action items below:


Put the “Consent is Verbal and Clear” coffee sleeves, coasters or cards into action.

We’ve distributed materials for the “Consent is Verbal and Clear” campaign throughout the state. You may be able to find the coffee sleeves, coasters or cards at a local business or domestic violence program. To find out if these materials are available in your community, contact the nearest ANDVSA member program.

Take a picture of these items in action- at your coffee shop, at an event, out in nature, or shared with friends.

Can’t find these items in your area? That’s ok! You can still enter the contest with one of the other options.


Wear denim on April 24 to recognize Denim Day.

Denim Day draws attention to harmful attitudes about sexual assault. It started in 1999 in response to an overturned sexual assault case in which the victim’s tight jeans were used as proof that the encounter was consensual. By wearing denim and recognizing denim day, we affirm that there is no excuse for sexual assault.

If your school or workplace doesn’t normally allow jeans, you can ask to participate in the Dollars for Denim campaign that raises money for local rape crisis centers. For more information about this campaign in Alaska, visit STAR’s website.


Attend a community event promoting consent or Sexual Assault Awareness.

There are so many events happening throughout the state during Sexual Assault Awareness Month! Attend and submit a photo from a local event hosted by your domestic violence/sexual assault program, tribe, school, clinic or club.

Not sure where to find events? Start by contacting the domestic violence/sexual assault program in your area to find out what they have planned.


2. Have your photo? Tag ANDVSA in a Facebook or Instagram post or post directly to our Facebook page.

If you don’t have a social media account but still want to participate, you can email your photo directly to andvsa@andvsa.org.

Photo entries will be shared on our Facebook page.

Don’t want your photo shared? You can still participate, but email us prior to submitting your entry and let us know that you don’t want your photo to be shared.

The winner will be drawn and announced on April 30, 2019.
