Illinois Students Get Creative to Promote Donate Life Illinois

Donate Life Illinois recently partnered with Best New Ad and college students/professors across Illinois to create advertisements that promote organ and tissue donation. Students were asked to create ads in three different categories (print, audio and video) that would encourage others to register their decision to be organ and tissue donors at

Students from more than 20 colleges and universities throughout the state submitted hundreds of advertisements for this contest. The level of creativity shown from these students was off the charts. We are extremely happy with the results and are excited to share the winners with you. Here are the a couple of the finalist and winning selections in the print and video categories:

Finalist (Video) – Advanced Advertising Class – Illinois Institiute of Art

First-Place (Print) – Philip Rau – College of DuPage

 Finalist (Print) – Kevin Millar – Illinois Institute of Art

  1. Definitely the last print one. I’m the wife of a double lung transplant recipient and the last print was very emotional and yet simple.

    Thanks for sharing and for everything you do!
