Deadline extended in Pima County anti-graffiti poster contest

Young artists have one more month to create and submit art to help Pima County fight graffiti.

Graffiti is a crime.
It hurts all of us: our homes, our businesses, our schools, the people who see it, the people who do it.
If you’re 9 to 18 years old, here’s a way to get your art displayed legally all over Pima County – and win $$$.
Create an artwork that conveys an effective anti-graffiti message that the County can use to design posters for distribution to public libraries, schools and community events.
If your art is chosen for the poster, you’ll get a $100 gift card. Four runners-up will get $25 gift cards.
The deadline for entries is 5 p.m. Monday, June 30.
Only one art work can be submitted per person.
Artwork can be realistic or abstract and must be suitable for all audiences and contain no obscenities or profanity.
Submitted art work will not be returned.
The submitted art work will be judged on its creativity, originality, visual impact and communication of the effect graffiti has on our community.
For more information, contest rules and the form you’ll need to submit with your art, please go to www.pima.gov/graffiti. Or contact Julie C. Simon at 724-6566.
