Plymouth State’s undergraduate and graduate students are invited to create the design for the official 2012 University Advancement New Year’s card. The contest winner will receive artist credits on the card and a certificate of achievement.
Artwork submissions should convey a sense of optimism and hope for the New Year while thematically incorporating Plymouth State. The contest is to determine artwork only; words or copy are not to be included in final submissions. Artwork may not reference specific religious holidays and should not contain images related to specific religious holidays. The deadline for entries is November 18, 2011.
This is an opportunity for all involved to explore various art forms, and interpretations of the theme, and showcase their artwork to a wide audience. The winning entry will be selected by committee by November 22, 2011, and the artist will be notified via e-mail or by phone.
Who may enter
Any Plymouth State student (undergraduate or graduate) in good academic and judicial standing. One entry per person.

Entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges selected by the University Advancement Office. Artwork will be judged based on artistic merit, creativity, and interpretation of theme. The winning entry will be selected by committee by November 22, 2011, and will be notified via e-mail or by phone.
