APCCP Special Announcement

From July 27th to August 12th, the APCCP will be celebrating the Summer Olympics with a series of Olympic-inspired social media posts on Big Food and Beverage marketing at athletic events. During this period, we will also be hosting a contest & twitter chat.

Please read below for details on this exciting campaign! 

Picture Contest - Food & Beverage Advertisements at the Olympics

Ads for the Olympics are everywhere right now...which will make it easy for you to enter our photo contest! 
Watch for Olympic ads sponsored by food or beverage companies. Between now and the closing ceremonies on August 12th, take a picture or video of an ad and post it on our facebook wall.
Tell us why you took the picture in a sentence or two (i.e. did it promote a healthy or contradictory message?) and you'll be entered to win a basket of cool stuff from our members!* 

Please share this contest with your friends & colleagues, as well as encourage the young people in your life to participate! We hope this activity will generate a lively, respectful and informative discussion on the relationship between Big Food and Beverage companies, marketing and health. 

*The prize pack can be shipped anywhere within Canada.
