Online voting will determine the Grand Prize Winner, who receives $2,000 worth of fair trade apparel, food, and other goods

Throughout the summer of 2010, people across the world were invited to creatively express what fair trade products mean to them through words, video, images, music, and other media in Your Olive Branch’s I Love Fair Trade! contest. Contestants’ submissions covered a variety of topics, such as the role fair trade products play in their lives, how and why they support fair trade, or how they think fair trade contributes to global peace and sustainability.

After reviewing all of the submissions, the contest judges have selected ten outstanding finalists, one of whom will win $2,000 worth of fair trade products, supplied generously by Alter Eco and Indigenous Designs.

An online vote to pick the winner began on Sunday, October 3, and will continue until Friday, November 5. The Grand Prize Winner will be announced on November 12.

To view all ten of the finalists’ submissions and cast a vote to pick the winner, visit I Love Fair Trade.
