2019 Poster Competition and Exhibition

The Hammond Northshore Regional Airshow Foundation announces an original art competition and exhibition. The winning artist will receive $1,000 cash prize that will be awarded at the opening reception on Friday, September 6 at the Hammond Regional Arts Center from 5:00-8:00 p.m. The winning artists will also be promoted on social media, press releases and presentations for the Hammond Northshore Regional Air Show. Artists are encouraged to offer a nod of respect to the artistic traditions of previous air show posters since people view these as collectors’ items. All mediums will be accepted, and all work must be original. Judging will be based on design concept, originality, creativity, ease of reproduction and implementation of theme. The winning original work of art will be reproduced as a poster to benefit the Hammond Northshore Regional Air Show Foundation. The Foundation reserves the right to unlimited reproduction and use of the image and/or parts of the image for airshow promotion. A limited number of posters will be printed, and the winning artist will sign one poster to be framed and auctioned at the annual air show fundraiser.
