Boy did people do it for Canada! But it’s for a good cause of course.

To celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary, ONE Condoms asked Canadians to design a condom wrapper for Canada.

The ONE Canada Design Contest received hundreds of submissions from people across the country, and behold–50 finalists have been announced.

Canadians can now place their vote on which designs they like. After all voting is important, let your voice be heard. Because …

Yes you can!

Now, are you a cheeky one?

A saucy one?

Perhaps a wild one?

The really patriotic one?

Or you might be the (next) great one?

Why not go ahead and explore?

Or how about poutine it in?

Canada left a lasting impression on the founder of ONE, Davin Wedel, who loved how much Canadians showed their patriotism and creativity in ‘poutine it in’.

“You did it, Canada! You designed hundreds of incredible condom wrapper designs to celebrate what it means to be ONE Canada. From ‘Tap ONE’ to wild bears and beavers to messages about consent and love, together you helped start condom conversations across Canada.”

And while we do get a lil’ wild in Canada…

… We still know all about consent.

And clearly appreciate having safe sex in style.

Members of ONE staff and a panel of eight guest judges were tasked with the selection of the 50 Finalist designs. The public can now vote for the 10 final winners. Voting will be available at onecondoms.ca/contest through July 12.

Now, what’s in it for the winners?

No, it’s not a free Tim Hortons coffee!

Each of the 10 final winners will receive a cash prize, a year’s supply of condoms featuring their winning artwork, an artist profile at onecondoms.ca, and a donation of up to 10,000 condoms to their Canadian health organization of choice.

ONE will also be donating a total of 150,000 condoms to various Canadian organizations dedicated to promoting sexual health education and outreach.

The winners will be announced sometime in July.

So go ahead and celebrate…

…Happy 150 Canada! Boom!
