As an avid animal rights activist and vegetarian for over 15 years (and vegan for 2 years), I feel very strongly about the rights and welfare of animals. I also believe that sometimes, in order to get your point across, you have to be graphic. Sometimes that’s just the only way to get people’s attention. Granted, that’s not always the case; but I know it is sometimes necessary. I also like to use humor – that can be effective too. (Especially if you have a twisted sense of humor like me.)
That being said, this group’s focus is to get people’s attention and educate them about the reality of animals and their so-called ‘place’ in our society. This means creating images with messages! Themes can include everything from general pet care and pet adoption to vegetarianism/veganism and zoos – and everything in between. In other words, animals can’t tell us what they think or how they feel; when you create an image, make sure that animal’s voice is loud and clear!
What would they say?
PLEASE read the rules at the bottom of the page.*
NOTE: The message MUST be clear. In other words, don’t submit a photo of a puppy and simply state in the description that it means you shouldn’t buy from pet stores. Any image that doesn’t make a statement will be rejected.
I’m hoping to really push some boundaries here, so let’s see what you’ve got!

VFA has pulled together and created images to speak out against the seal hunt, and these cool collages are the powerful results!
