This year, Art Walk has introduced something new: a poster contest. Posters should be designed for a finished size of 12 x 18 inches with space for a listing of Art Walk members and sponsors. View and Print the 2014 Poster Contest Form
Four poster designs will be selected and the winning designs will win a ribbon, $50 each and will be featured as the quarterly Art Walk posters for 2015. The entry fee is $5 for one piece, $10 for two or more up to a maximum of four entries per artist. Winning poster designs will also be featured on the first Art Walk brochure of 2014.
Artists are welcome to enter both contests. A valid contest entry consists of the appropriate entry form, fees paid by cash or card, and digital images of the works to be entered (note: only digital images will be accepted this year).
Our judges will jury the entries, and select artists will be invited to bring their art to OTC Fine Art Gallery at the Gillioz, Third Floor, for final jurying and exhibition. The jury will award the Grand Prize, Second Prize, Third Prize, Honorable Mention and the Poster Awards; the People’s Choice Award will be voted on by those attending the October 2014 Art Walk.
