The 2011 GLAAD Amplifier Awards - did you make a gay positive ad this year?

Adland: 

GLAAD is accepting submissions for The 2011 GLAAD Amplifier Awards, (formerly known as the GLAAD Media Awards in Advertising.)

The GLAAD Amplifier Awards elevate and promote images in advertising that include fair and accurate representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and the issues that affect their lives. The GLAAD Amplifier Awards also fund GLAAD's work to amplify stories of LGBT people and issues that build support for equality.

Submitted materials must be received in the Los Angeles GLAAD office by Friday, July 29, 2011
at 6 p.m. PT. Projects submitted must have been printed, broadcast, appeared online or exhibited outdoors in the United States between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011.

We know that this McDonald's ad from France will not be in the running, as the McDonald’s President and Chief of Operations Don Thompson has stated 'I'm Christian - no gay ads for USA'. But your ad could be - download submission form here. The amplifier awards will be given out October 4 during Advertising Week.

    That is an AWESOME McDonald's Ad. Shame on them for not airing it here. Especially in NY State!
