Poster Contest

MANCHESTER —There is a lot to love about New Hampshire. Manchester’s Currier Museum of Art, the N.H. Division of Travel and Tourism and the N.H. Department of Cultural Resources have teamed up for a unique poster competition that asks individuals to share what makes our state so special.

“Live Free and...” uses Travel and Tourism’s marketing campaign as the inspiration for ideas, asking artists to express, in poster form, what makes New Hampshire important to them. Participants must complete the “Live Free and...” tagline by adding a word or phrase, no more than 20 characters in length, that captures their idea, and to support their slogan with original artwork.

Posters can be designed using illustration, photography, typography, mixed media or other graphic design technique, and avoid using any copyrighted or trademarked materials or elements.

The competition is open to New Hampshire residents and will be judged in three categories: Adult Professional Entry, Adult Amateur Entry and Youth / Student (K-12) entry. Public online voting will determine the top thirty posters. A panel of design experts, artists and state officials will then determine the fifteen semifinal entries, which will then be displayed at the Currier’s Community Gallery and on various web media.

Winners will be announced at the Currier’s First Thursday Live! Event on August 1.

“Live Free and...” is a companion to the Currier’s current exhibit “Poster Mania: Leisure, Romance and Adventure in 1890s America,” on view through September 2.

The deadline for submissions to “Live Free and...” is July 8; there is no cost to enter. For more information, visit www.currier.org/calendar/poster-competition.
