How will it work?
How about a cash award for 3 photo contest categories…
1) Most degrading gotopless.org event moment for women-
2) Most degrading example of public sexual performance-
3) Most degrading example of child abuse-
(by allowing a minor to observe sexual performance or otherwise directly participate in the event)-
1st Place winners in each category will receive $100. 1st Runners Up will receive a $25 gift certificate from a downtown Asheville restaurant.
All submitted pictures will be shared with the authorities, media outlets, and those who read this website.
