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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
