Call for Submissions - The 2011 Amplifier Awards

The GLAAD Amplifier Awards elevate and promote images in advertising that include fair and accurate representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and the issues that affect their lives. The GLAAD Amplifier Awards also fund GLAAD's work to amplify stories of LGBT people and issues that build support for equality.
