The Art Institutes and Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education, announced today that entries for the 2013 Poster Design Competition will be accepted through January 31, 2013. Winners will earn up to a full tuition scholarship to study at one of the more than 50 Art Institutes schools.

This year’s competition challenges high school seniors and high school graduates from the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico to design a poster that best expresses the Competition’s theme “You Can Create Tomorrow.” Contestants will compete in two different categories: (i) high school senior or (ii) high school graduate/adult.

“The kind of talent and enthusiasm exhibited by these young artists assures us that they will indeed create a unique and better tomorrow,” said John Mazzoni, President of The Art Institutes. “We are honored to highlight their creativity and talent and to assist them in reaching their academic goals.”

“It is so vital to nurture the talents of aspiring artists,” said Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts. “We are proud to be a sponsor of this competition and look forward to seeing their vision expressed in their artwork.”
