They may also be distributed in other ways.
Artwork not chosen for display will be returned to the artist.
Please based your art on this passage from our Nipple Diaries stories:
"What can we do to make breastfeeding a less intimidating experience for new moms? One way to change things might be to make breastfeeding a "normal" experience, by breastfeeding our children wherever and whenever they need it, and talking about breastfeeding in our everyday lives, not just when we're pregnant or when our children are young. If new mothers saw breastfeeding as a natural, self-evident part of life instead of a strange new experience, maybe those first few weeks of life with a newborn would be even more special."
