Unbrand Your World

Warning message

Submissions for this form are closed.

Help us show the world why plain packaging is needed to help fight back against tobacco industry marketing. With advertising restrictions changing in countries all around the world, tobacco companies haven taken to cigarette packs and even cigarettes themselves to entice users and sell their brand.

Between April 18 and 30, take a photo of a pack of cigarettes from your country that uses creative design and marketing to draw in customers, and submit the photo on our website. Tell us why it caught your eye and what you would do to change it!

You’ll have a chance to win Johns Hopkins gear and be featured on Johns Hopkins websites. Together, we can push to make cigarette packages less appealing.

If you have any issues submitting this form, please email your images to igtc@jhu.edu.
