The following is an excerpt from the bottom of the Peace project GUIDELINES page (above link):
Both The Peace Project and The Whole 9 are conceived upon the philosophy of inclusion -- encouraging people from all cultures, religions, and creative walks of life, to participate, connect, share resources, and help find solutions for a better world. We will gladly waive the fee for all artists (especially artists outside of North America) that want to participate but are unable to use PayPal or pay the submission fee. Please follow the submission instructions and when you get to the payment page, log out and send an email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post your submission. If you would like to get involved in The Peace Project beyond submitting your art, please click here to contact us."
