Call for Submissions: Uptown Arts Stroll 2012 Poster Contest

Deadline: Friday 16 March by 5 p.m.

Northern Manhattan’s annual arts festival returns this June! The Uptown Arts Stroll invites neighborhood residents and visitors from the rest of the city to a month of art exhibitions, performances, and more, north of W 155th Street.

The Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA) is calling for submissions for the Uptown Arts Stroll 2012 poster contest.


  1. Artist may submit only one image for consideration.
  2. Artist must be a resident of Washington Heights or Inwood.
  3. Image will be used for publications with the following dimensions:
    • Poster: 11 x 17 in.
    • Brochure: 6 x 10¾ in.
    • Postcard: 5½ x 8½ in.
  4. Allow for full color and B&W reproduction.
  5. The selected image will be used in the poster that will represent and promote the Uptown Arts Stroll 2012 (please include the festival name “Uptown Arts Stroll” in your poster design). NoMAA will be responsible for the additional text that will be included in the poster (such as dates), not the artist submitting the entry. Please leave space for text.
  6. A panel of judges drawn from the local arts community will give extra consideration to eye-catching original and unpublished images that reflect the arts community of Northern Manhattan. The panel will select finalists. Finalists will be asked to bring a hard copy of the image, on paper or board no larger than 9 x 12 in., to exhibit at a NoMAA Artists’ Salon where the winning image will be selected by community vote.
  7. Entry must include artist’s name, address, phone number, and e-mail.
