$300 PRIZE
Deadline Extended: March 21, 2022

Wheaton Arts Parade Poster Contest Now Open to Artists & Designers

Wheaton Arts Parade is extending the deadline and opening the contest to artists and designers who live or work in Montgomery County. WAP is seeking an "original design to celebrate art and Wheaton's diverse cultures and communicate the fun-filled spirit of a parade and art festival."


The winner will receive a $300 commission donated by IHOP Wheaton and Los Chorros Restaurant. Whether or not the eventual winner is a student, an additional $100 will still be awarded to a Montgomery County school for art supplies. The winner will get to select the school. Designs must be original and may not include images that are copyrighted by anyone other than the applicant. Designs may not use stock images or those taken from commercial design applications.

Past posters can be viewed in the website archiveBut don't let your imagination be limited by the past. Give us your fresh ideas for 2022.
If the winner is a student, they will have an opportunity to work with a professional graphic design artist to turn their design into the image that will be used for WAP22 promotional materials, including our poster, t-shirt, and program.
The winning design will be integrated into the poster template shown below. Please submit digital entries only. Entries should be 8.5” x 11” in size and saved as a 300 dpi to-size JPEG, PNG or vector PDF format. Please use no more than 5 colors, including black and white.
