The Dance Program is holding its first annual POSTER ART CONTEST.  We are seeking visual representations of material relevant to Program’s philosophy of “global embodied social change”.   The question we ask is: How does dance cross cultural barriers, contexts, and disciplines?

Parameters: Final submission can be a JPG, PDF, or Photoshop project (of a drawing, painting, photo, sculpture or 3D space), a digital graphic design, a screen-print, a typographic exploration, a collage, a drawing, a painting, a photo, a photo montage, or any combination of techniques or processes that exist or that you can invent for a printed announcement.  (For the sake of authenticity and copyright we’re requesting that all imagery be original or used with proper permission and that imagery does not violate any law or copyright, trademark, publicity or privacy right.)

One finalist will be chosen as the poster designer for the Student Dance Concert (April 29 and 30) and will receive a small honorarium.  ALL submitted materials will be considered for future posters and other Dance Program artwork (with the artists’ permissions). We would also like to invite all interested or participating students to sit in on any of our dance classes for inspirational or sketching purposes.  For more information, please contact Tara Webb ( at x8260.

ALL submissions will be displayed in the LPAC Lobby during Arts Weekend April 16 and 17, 2011 as part of a curated cross-disciplinary exhibition.

Posters will be judged based on clarity of concept (does not necessarily mean simplicity), composition and aesthetics (with hierarchy, typography, color, imagery, etc. considered).

You must include somewhere on the poster the following information (in no particular format):
