Trojan Brand Condoms is asking for help. The company, which is owned by Church & Dwight, is asking musician and artists to apply for the Trojan Artists Grant program.

Those receiving grants are asked to produce a piece of music that encourages people to use a prophylactic every time they engage in intercourse. The project is the latest iteration of Trojan's "Evolve" advertising campaign, which began in April.

In addition to television spots, Trojan sponsored two tours that crisscrossed the U.S. The treks featured such attractions as an interactive bus and IMAX-style rollercoaster.

Additionally, on the opening night of the Democratic National Convention in Denver, the condom maker sponsored a performance by comedian Bill Maher, dubbed "Evolve America -- An Evening of Sex, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll."

Grants for the program range from $3,000 to $4,000, and the deadline for applications is Sept. 5. Projects that are funded will be put onto a Web site that is being built in conjunction with MTV.

More information about the program can be found here. Applications can be sent to trojanevolve@gmail.com.
