    This week's contest is devoted to actors/actresses, past and present, who are/were politically active in a public setting--publicly supporting a candidate, participating in protests, publicly supporting a particular cause, working in the political arena, etc. For ex: Michael B. Jordan, Jane Fonda, George Clooney, Clint Eastwood, etc. For the purposes of this contest, their primary job should be/have been as an actor, so Cheeto Voldemort doesn't count. :p

    Standard av rules apply: 200 x 200 pixels max, 1 MB max. Please keep it work/Google-safe.

    You may enter up to three avatars. The voting thread will go up on the 23rd.
