Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon placed a full-page ad in today’s New York Times to amplify the call on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to ban fracking for gas in the state. The ad, created by Fenton, highlights the dangers of fracking and urges Cuomo to “give clean energy a chance.”
Ono and Lennon also launched a #dontfrackny video contest today through their organization Artists Against Fracking. Video submissions will be judged in two categories: 1) the best 30 second TV ad against fracking and 2) a short video of three minutes or less educating people about the hazards of fracking.
Ono and Lennon will select one winning video from each category and treat the winners to lunch with them both in New York City. In addition, the winning television ad will also be broadcast in the New York City and Albany media markets. Interested in submitting? Check out the details here.
