to keep things interesting, the city is giving new york city dwellers the chance to promote safer sex throughout the city. they’re asking new yorkers to design a special edition wrapper for NYC’s iconic prophylactic. the contest is open to any new york city resident 17 and older. the winning design will grace condom packages in fall of 2010 and could also appear in social marketing campaigns.
