Arts & Humanities Month: Poster Competition

Calling all artists!

Enter the 2022 National Arts & Humanities Month poster design competition for a chance to win a cash prize and have your artwork represent NAHM throughout the month of October. The theme is Championing the Creative Spirit and the competition aims to:

  • provide a platform for art-makers with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences,
  • envision National Arts & Humanities Month through the eyes of artists, and
  • connect artists with local arts agencies in their communities.

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 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!

Entries must be submitted by Tuesday, September 6 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Semi-finalists will be announced September 15 and winners will be announced October 3.  Entries must be submitted via the entry submission form.

  • First Place: $1,000
  • Second Place: $500
  • Third Place: $250
