Spurred to action by supporter Robert Breaux‘s ambition and grassroots initiative, Infowars is announcing a highway billboard contest aimed at waking up the masses and promoting liberty in your area.
Breaux strategically placed Infowars billboards on major U.S. interstates, such as in Jackson, Miss., on Interstate 55, and the billboard in Little Rock, Ark., on Interstate 40, a major route which runs almost entirely across the continental U.S.
Motorists reported seeing the billboards in several states, including Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and Florida.

Riding off the billboards’ success, Infowars is announcing our latest contest geared to spread the message of truth even further.
This contest centers around submitting videos of creative billboard design concepts to Infowars. Film yourself handing out pamphlets of your billboard idea and posting it in legal and lawful places. Then, upload the video to Youtube, or other similar online video platforms. These videos will be judged and the winner chosen among them.
Send entries to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The top entry will receive a cash prize of $5,000 for the best video and billboard concept idea, and will be considered for an actual billboard to be put up at Infowars’ discretion.
The best entries will be posted on Infowars.com and Prisonplanet.com.
Final deadline to be determined.
If possible, list your local Alex Jones broadcasting station’s call letters somewhere on the billboard.

FAQ and Frequent Mistakes
Do I have to sign up, register or complete a form to enter?
No. Simply complete your video (look at the Requirements for details of what is required for the video), upload to YouTube or other online video sites and send us the links. There are several alternative video upload sites; for example: vimeo, dailymotion, metacafe, etc.
What constitutes copyright infringement?
We strongly suggest you review what constitutes Fair Use. News clips, subject to fair use, may be used, however, bear in mind that the length of the clip used is a key factor in determining fair use. Long clips are also not good editing practice when trying to make your content compelling.
Frequent Mistake: Majority of content is old
New content is a requirement for winning a cash prize.
Frequent Mistake: Incorrect title and description
Video title should include “Infowars.com Billboard Contest.” Video description should also include the website (http://www.infowars.com). Please read contest rules carefully for other requirements.
