USM Foundation Sponsors Art and Design Contest

SALISBURY, MD---The University System of Maryland Foundation (USMF) is sponsoring an art and design contest to highlight creativity and innovation within system campuses. 

Submissions are accepted through Friday, September 21.  All faculty, staff and students age 18 and over who work or study at USM institutions are eligible to participate. 

Works should be based on interpretation of the quote:  “Do not fear the winds of adversity.  Remember:  a kite rises against the wind, rather than with it.”  Judging criteria include clarity of communicating the quote visually; artistic merit and creative expression; and representation of USMF’s mission, vision and values.

Winners are expected to be named Friday, September 28.  First prize is $600, and the art will be featured on the cover of USMF’s 2012 annual report.  Runners-up earn $350 and $250, and will be spotlighted inside the report.

Submissions should be sent digitally (jpeg format, 300 dpi or higher) to usmf-art@usmd.edu.
