Win a $10K prize for drawing Mohammed

Leave it to Pam Geller. She's offering a $10,000 prize for the best Mohammed cartoon at a May 3 contest in Garland, Texas.
It’s time to stand up.
That’s why my organization, the human rights advocacy group the American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI, will be holding a contest for cartoons of Muhammad, and an exhibit of Muhammad cartoons this May in Garland, Texas. The keynote speaker will be Dutch freedom fighter and Parliamentarian Geert Wilders – one of the very few politicians on the international scene who dares to speak the truth about the jihad threat.
The contest will be online, with entries posted at the AFDI website. The winning cartoon will be announced at the May 3 cartoon exhibit in Garland. The winning cartoonist will be awarded a $10,000 prize.
The cartoon exhibit will feature images of Islam’s prophet, both historic and contemporary, and speeches by leading voices of freedom and internationally renowned free speech advocates. Also speaking will be brave artists who are unbowed by violent threats and determined to stand for the freedom of speech.
The exhibit will be held at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland on Sunday, May 3. This was the site of a Muslim conference denouncing “Islamophobia” – an obscene stand for them to take after the Charlie Hebdo massacre – and our massive Free Speech Rally outside that event. The Muslim event was held in a hall owned by the local school district. When asked why they allowed that event on their premises, they answered that their hall was open to anyone who wished to rent it. So we are renting it for our Muhammad Cartoon Exhibit.
In case that last paragraph wasn't enough of a hint for you, Garland, Texas has a Muslim population. Garland is in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, which has the fourth largest Muslim population of any metropolitan area in the United States.

As you might imagine, the 'security costs' of putting on an event like this are going to be enormous. Read the whole thing.
