Calling all artists!

Beginning in June 2020, Indianapolis will celebrate the 200th anniversary of the founding of our city. As part of this milestone celebration, the Indianapolis Bicentennial Commission is seeking art and design submissions from Indianapolis – Marion County residents of all ages. Your designs will be reviewed by members of Mayor Joe Hogsett's Create Indy Advisory Committee, and award-winning submissions will be used for Bicentennial promotional materials, public exhibits, and more.

What are we looking for?
The Commission is seeking original designs that can be adapted for use as an official Bicentennial logo. Additionally, the commission is accepting artist submissions that can be used for posters or memorabilia in celebration of our city. All submissions should use the four Bicentennial themes -- History, Civic Pride, Innovation, and Legacy -- as inspiration.

What's the Prize? 
Overall Winner: $5,000 prize
Youth Awardee: $1,000 prize with half as a 529 contribution
Peoples' Choice: $500 prize

To Enter: 
An online portal will launch this summer, allowing designers and artists to upload their work. The deadline for submissions is September 1.
