2016 Art Poster Contest
Artists around the country are invited to submit their original artwork for the chance to win cash prizes in the 2016 Gilroy Garlic Festival Art Poster Contest. The first-place winning entry will be reproduced as a high-quality, limited-edition poster to be sold at the 38th annual Gilroy Garlic Festival on July 29, 30 and 31, 2016.
Cash prizes of $500 for first place, $250 for second place, and $100 for third place will be awarded. Up to ten non-winning entries, excluding the first-place winner, will be entered in the “People’s Choice” Contest. Visitors to the Festival can view the People’s Choice finalists and vote for their favorite poster. The top vote-getter receives a prize of $200.
Entries are generally due in March. See the 2016 Poster Contest Rules and Entry Form for more details.
