The winning entries from the MSPCA and AHES poster contest were exhibited each year during Be Kind to Animals Week®. This exhibition was a colourful, vibrant event and was, no doubt, a highlight for the children who had their work included in the display. This exhibition was open to the public and widely advertised, as one brochure about the display noted, “visitors to this interesting exhibit will be welcomed.”
Our Dumb Animals also routinely published a selection of the winning entires of the poster competition each year, giving further exposure not only to the artists who had their work selected for inclusion, but also to the messages of kindness and compassion to all species. Below is a selection of winning posters from the MSPCA and AHES poster contest from the 1930s.
