Hey, amateur or professional artists! Would you like to see your work published in The Stranger? Recently, an evangelist Christian gained national attention after claiming that Starbucks removed "Christmas from their cups because they hate Jesus." (Starbucks says they actually removed reindeers and ornaments from their cups to be more inclusive of other religions.) This action drove certain Christians to the brink of insanity, proclaiming that the decision was just another shot in the continuing "War Against Christmas."

Well, it's time to correct this obvious wrong and GIVE CHRISTIANS THE STARBUCKS CUP THEY DESERVE! We've published a blank Starbucks cup, and we want YOU to design and color it with a "Christian/Christmas" theme. Because if we don't give them the cup they want? These Christians will never fucking shut up.


• Use any media you want (paint, markers, crayons, colored pencils, collage, etc.) as long as it can be scanned or delivered via mail.

• It must have a "Christian/Christmas" theme. (No overtly profane words or images, please!)

Include your contact info (name, e-mail address, phone number) and either e-mail a high-res image (300 dpi jpg) to anonymous@thestranger.com or send via snail mail to "Cup Coloring Contest" c/o The Stranger, 1535 11th Ave, Third Floor, Seattle, WA, 98122.

• The deadline to submit your image is 5 p.m., Thursday, December 10, 2015.

All entries will be fairly judged by a local unbiased expert (probably an atheist barista), and the winner will have their artwork run in The Stranger that hits the streets on December 23. recommended
