The Art Institutes and Americans for the Arts, a nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education, announced Tuesday that entries for the 2012 Poster Design Competition will be accepted through Feb. 3, 2012. Winners will earn up to a full tuition scholarship to study at one of the more than 45 Art Institutes schools.
This year’s competition challenges high school seniors and high school graduates from the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico to design a poster that best expresses the Competition’s new theme “You Can Create Tomorrow.” Contestants will compete in two different categories: (i) high school senior or (ii) high school graduate/adult.
“We are inspired by the creativity that students exhibit in the artwork they create for this competition and believe that this scholarship competition helps some of our most talented students achieve their educational goals,” said John Mazzoni, president of The Art Institutes.
“We, along with our partner Americans for the Arts, eagerly await submissions to see the innovative and unique ways this year’s students express their vision of ‘You Can Create Tomorrow’.”
“We are excited to be part of this scholarship competition,” said Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts. “The entries not only highlight the remarkable talent of our nation’s youth, but also remind us what a vital role art plays in our everyday lives.”
