Art groups set ‘Create Tomorrow' poster contest

The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and Americans for the Arts, the nation's leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education, is accepting entries for the 2013 Poster Design Competition through Jan. 31.

The competition challenges high-school seniors and high-school graduates from the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to design a poster that best expresses the theme “You Can Create Tomorrow.”

Contestants will compete in two categories: high-school senior or high-school graduate/adult. The local high-school senior winner receives a tuition scholarship of up $3,000; the adult winner gets a $1,000 scholarship to attend The Art Institute school they represent. Both winners advance to national competition for a chance at a full-tuition scholarship (high-school senior) or $10,000 tuition scholarship (high-school graduate/adult) at The Art Institute.
