Reaction from around the world-the Middle East, Latin America, North America and Europe-has been positive and enthusiastic to the recent announcement of Advertising Age's Olympics Peace Challenge, an international competition for print public service ads to promote 17 days of uninterrupted world peace during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

Spurred by news the International Olympic Committee had begun talks with the United Nations about calling a global truce during the games, Advertising Age and Advertisting Age International are sponsoring this competition in the hope it will inspire citizens, businesses and governments to back the truce.

The competition is open to all parties. Here are the guidelines:

We prefer entries to be submitted in a tight comp format or a laser print from a computer. All entries must be magazine page or spread or newspaper full-page and can be either color or b&w. Each entry must be mounted on a black showboard no larger than 18 in. by 24 in.

Entries must promote world peace during the 17 days of the Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

Entries should be sent to Steve Yahn, Editor, Advertising Age, 740 N. Rush St., Chicago, Ill. 60611.

Competition deadline is Dec. 31, 1995. There are no fees of any kind.

Winning entries will be published in Advertising Age and Advertising Age International early in 1996.

For more information on the competition, please contact Steve Yahn at (312) 649-5320 or by e-mail at imm@adage.com, or write in care of Advertising Age, 740 N. Rush St., Chicago, Ill. 60611.
