CopBlock.org’s “Featured Content of the Month” Contest
CopBlock.org is a decentralized project supported by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared goal of police accountability.
That decentralization allows for much more robust and diverse content focused on a shared goal – in this case communicating that badges don’t grant extra rights.
Looking to a “leader” for answers or convincing yourself that the same institution (an artificial monopoly that lacks the proper incentives) can *fix* policing today can only fail.
To really effect positive change we each must think for ourselves, act accordingly and always be ready to modify our own views when presented with better ideas. It’s an evolution.
That’s the purpose of CopBlock.org’s Featured Content of the Month contest.
To generate new, thought-provoking content oriented along the perspective that badges don’t grant extra rights. Things like a blog post, picture, or video.
We can all learn from each other – share your ideas. Engage.
Create something? Share it with us and we’ll share it with our network. Think of CopBlock.org as a way to leverage your work. And a way for you to potentially receive CopBlock.org swag.
What type of content you ask?
- best Copblocking video (see document: CopBlocking101 & videos)
- best philosophical video (see mission: CopBlock.org/About & videos))
- best photograph
- best write-up/post (see submit: CopBlock.org/Submit)
The “best” entry in each category, as decided by Pete & Ademo (who take into consideration the opinion of CopBlock.org readers) will receive 100-FRNs worth of CopBlock.org swag (provided by Pete & Ademo).

To Submit Content:
Email “contest[at]copblock.org” with “Featured Content of the Month” in the subject line and:
- provide a link to your content, or
- attach your content to the email, or
- include the content in the email itself
Whether or not you take the “best” prize for a particular category, we appreciate every submission and may post some to CopBlock.org to help get it in front of more eyes and minds.
Submitted will be reviewed by CopBlock.org contributors Pete Eyre & Ademo Freeman who will select the “best” in each category. Though the “best” is ultimately subjective, the pair will weigh heavily the content’s overall potential impact and underlying message. They’ll also consider the feedback provided by readers.
