Poster Contest

24th Annual Show Poster Contest Winners

This year’s annual Show Poster Contest saw 61 fantastic entries from all over the U.S. Thank you show organizers for taking the time to submit your entries online, send us posters, and provide us with information about the artists featured on them. Our judges this year were Diane Sulg, Carolyn Rosenberger and Lindsey Cherek. They certainly had their work cut out for them as they judged each poster by giving it a rating between 1 and 10 in six different areas: layout; artwork; originality; use of color; how inviting and readable the poster was; and overall quality. The posters with the highest combined scores in each category were named the winner. Before we get down to announcing this year’s winners, we’d like to invite event organizers to submit their 2020 Show posters and artist bios for next year’s contest.
