Bring on the fan art! Submit your best Supernatural season 10 posters and help countdown the days until the premiere! 
Submit here: http://thecwspn.tumblr.com/submit

What is the promotional value of this contest? The actual dollar value that I know is assigned to a marketing proposal such as this one. How much would The CW pay for a commission for promotional graphics, and how much advertising value do they plan to get out of them?
And what exactly does the winner get? Yes, their name will be posted in small letters on at least a few social media platforms, but what value are you assigning to the work that they produce? 
If you’re doing this because you agree with the fans that the official poster - the one you presumably paid someone actual dollars to produce - was subpar, how much more value are you willing to assign to the fan works that are presumably better quality than the original?
These are just a few questions I have, and questions that I encourage every artist who is a fan of the show to consider before they submit their work and agree to have their names posted on the site and published in local or national media without any additional compensation to the extent permitted by law. Because it seems like, before you create images that will be used to promote the flagship show on the network, you should be aware that you are agreeing to grant and assign to The CW a royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide license to any and all rights to the art you created.
Yes, you love the show. I love the show too. And I am guessing that thecwspn loves the show as well - but I’m guessing they also really, really love all the money they make off of the show. 
They like it so much they don’t want to share any of it with you, even if you are helping them earn it.

❝ Now “tribal trends” are totally “in.” You can walk into any store in the mall and see “Native” imagery everywhere. As a Native person, when I look at them, I can’t help but remember the not-so-distant past when my people weren’t allowed, by law, to wear these things. It’s such a constant reminder of the colonial power structures still in place. Back in the day, white people had the power to take away our culture, and now they have the power to wear it however they see fit. These are our images, our cultural symbols, yet we are completely powerless to have control over them. ❞

"Institutions work this way. A son is murdered by the police, and nothing is done. The institutions send the victim’s family on a merry-go-round, going from one agency to another, until they wear out and give up. This is very effective way to beat down poor and oppressed people, who do not have the time to prosecute their case. Time is money to poor people. To go to Sacramento means loss of a day’s pay - often loss of a job. If this is democracy, obviously it is a bourgeois democracy limited to the middle and upper classes. Only they can afford to participate in it.”- Huey P. Newton, Sacramento and the “Panther Bill”

imo if parents dont respect their kids then they dont deserve respect from their kids. im tired of people thinking that its normal for parents to treat their children like property or like they dont have feelings. im tired of people thinking that overprotective parents arent harmful. treat your children like people because thats what they ARE
