Miss Landmine Contest
Created by Norwegian artist Morten Traavik, the Miss Landmine contest is both a protest of the use of landmines and a celebration of beauty. It's no secret that landmines are violent objects of war that indiscriminately maim and kill - often innocent people. The Miss Landmine contest in Angola continues to educate people on the effects of landmines but, in a different, more personal manner - by featuring actual landmine victims. The web site allows visitors to view and vote for a winner - to be announced on April 4, 2008. In a sometimes ugly world; beauty remains.
