This year’s competition challenges entrants to submit a poster that addresses the theme “Life is better with art in it.” The deadline to submit entries is February 4, 2011. Full entry requirements can be viewed at www.artinstitutes.edu/postercompetition.
According to Gregory J. Marick, president of The Art Institute of California – Orange County, “Industries today are fueled by creativity. We are privileged to educate students with the talent and the drive to enter a design field. The Poster Design Competition is a platform for students to channel their talent and turn it into something tangible.”
“The Poster Design Competition brings out and showcases a diverse pool of remarkably talented high school students,” says Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts. “The entry pieces are not only vibrant and exciting, but also a great reminder of how much art can touch us in our everyday lives.”
