There's less than a week left to enter the 2016 Capitol Hill Banner Design Contest! The Capitol Hill Business Improvement District (BID) and the Capitol Hill Art League (CHAL) are collaborating on a competition to give artists in the Art League a unique opportunity to celebrate our community through creative talents. The competition, open to CHAL members, is to design all-weather banners that will be on display all around the Hill for nearly a year.
For complete guidelines and entry information for the contest, click here. The deadline for entries is November 15, 2016 and the winners will be announced on December 1, 2016. After the winners are selected, production will begin and the new banners will be hung around The Hill in mid-January for all to enjoy!
Artists may enter up to three (3) submissions and will pay a flat entry fee of $15 (total for all three entries). The BID will select up to four (4) winning entries and artists will receive $500 for the winning designs.
We're looking forward to showcasing our community's artistic talent and passion for Capitol Hill! Please contact Michelle Valeri at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
