Arts Focus: Poster competition champions the creative spirit

This column is sponsored by Arlington Arts/Arlington Cultural Affairs, a division of Arlington Economic Development.

Calling all artists! October is National Arts & Humanities Month, and we are excited to partner with Americans for the Arts for the #NAHM 2022 Poster Competition!

The top three posters will receive cash prizes, and the winner will have their art featured as part of National Arts & Humanities content all October long! The theme is “Championing the Creative Spirit”.

All entries will be displayed on Americans for the Arts’ website and will be evaluated by a panel of judges (see poster guidelines and judging criteria at the link below). The top posters will be selected as semi-finalists and anyone who visits the Americans for the Arts’ website between September 15-30 can vote for their favorite design. The artists who create the designs with the three highest vote totals will receive cash prizes, and the design with the most votes will be featured throughout National Arts & Humanities Month!

October is National Arts & Humanities Month (NAHM). A collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. NAHM was launched by Americans for the Arts more than 30 years ago as National Arts Week in honor of the twentieth anniversary of the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities. In 1993, it was reestablished by Americans for the Arts and national arts partners as a month-long celebration, with goals of:

  • Focusing on equitable access to the arts at local, state and national levels
  • Encouraging individuals, organizations and diverse communities to participate in the arts
  • Allowing governments and businesses to show their support of the arts
  • Raising public awareness about the positive impact of the arts and humanities in our communities and lives

Americans for the Arts mission is to build recognition and support for the extraordinary and dynamic value of the arts and to lead, serve, and advance the diverse networks of organizations and individuals who cultivate the arts in America. Connecting the best ideas and leaders from the arts, communities, and business, together we can work to ensure that every American has access to the transformative power of the arts.

Entries must be submitted by Tuesday, September 6 at 5 p.m. ET. Semi-finalists will be announced September 15 and winners will be announced October 3. Entries must be submitted via www.AmericansForTheArts.org/NAHMposter.
