Draw Muhammad Day 2010!
This idea was originally started by Seattle artist Molly Norris after the censorship that has been happened on South Park this year. Norris created a cartoon that called for May 20th to be 'Everybody Draw Muhammad Day'.
Norris has pulled the idea of Draw Muhammad Day, but I wish to continue it on. At the time of this writing, I do not know of any place to centrally collect images of Muhammad. Consider this that place.
I will pool all the images and on the morning of May 20, 2010, will publish an image gallery containing all appropriate images for the world to see.
Take your time and think long and hard about how you want to depict Muhammad. The best entries will be featured in a separate gallery at the top of the page. There are some ground rules for the depiction of Muhammad however.
Keep it clean. This is about proving that this is America and, in America, we don't back down when threatned. Showing the world that we're not afraid to depict Muhammad is the point, not use it for your personal/political/religious message.
Please make sure your name/initials/signature is inscribed in the image. Since these will be posted for anyone to freely view or keep, I think it's important that we keep credit where credit is due. This is, however, totally up to you. Just don't get mad if you didn't put your initials in an image and you see it floating around the internet.
Additionaly, when you submit your image for the gallery, you're releasing the creator and maintainer of this site from any legal or financial responsibility that arises from your submission of an image to this site.
Unfortunately, this page is pretty bare right now. I wanted to get it up and running. Over the next couple of weeks, leading up to May 20th, I will be posting more information on why this is an important cause to uptake, what's wrong with depictions of Muhammad and other miscellaneous information.
Until then, feel free to submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
