Our street posters go out this weekend. They go to 400 sites around the city, rock and roll style. I have found this a great way to create a buzz about the show and to take it to the masses. We did 2 different street posters this year, they will go up side by side. They are about 3X5ft

Street posters?  For a bodybuilding contest?   That's a novel concept.

Not trying to be a wiseguy but do you get any complaints?  Some people might consider it indecent or obtrusive if these are in the view of the general public.  Have you selected certain spots like gyms around town or are you putting these up anywhere that notices can legally be posted?

Serious q.

Do you have to take them down? Do you tape them around electrical polls? Any bodybuilders going to be on Tv? Ring the networks. Get a pro on THE footy shows.

you should have put a grapefruit alongside Kai - it may have brought in the more subversive crowd.

That is a good question, thanks for asking respectfully.

I aim to shock somewhat and have had some great reactions over the last 10 years. The posters are plastered everywhere, busy intersections is probably the best description. Nothing to do with gyms or health food shops. I don't really care who I offend, as long as people know the show is on. The way I look at it is simple, people that are not into it, or are offended by it, will not come to the show anyway, so who cares what they think.

If I see a poster for a music show, art display, opera or anything that I am not into, I won't go, regardless.

They are too big to tape to poles etc. I pay a company that does rock and roll, called rock posters to distribute, they have a network of sites that you pay rent on. After the show is done, they just paste over the top of them.

We usually get them on the news shows and always in the papers. The footy shows have not usually started by March, so that is a bit hard to do.

Here are some samples of my media stories so far...

For the street posters we use only 2 colors.

The actual contest poster (A2) is higher res and better quality........

Me too. I think the most "appealing" or "marketable" as you want to say posters for the main public would be posters that display ABS..ABS....ABS.

Dex hitting an ab shot for example or another competitor with tight waist and abs.
