The 2017 contest winners and finalists saw their work featured in many newspapers, on TV, on radio, on social media and toured across the Bay Area in a 4-location poster exhibition. Due to the tremendous success of the first contest, the 2018 poster contest exposure will be much greater. Specials highlights include an exhibition of winners and finalists at the 2018 Marin County Fair, which enjoys over 120,000 visitors. The Marin Museum of Contemporary Art will be holding a special exhibition in their gallery. And so much more!!!

We are working with major Bay Area television and radio stations and newspapers to greatly expand the coverage of this year's contest. Your voice will be heard and your art will be seen by millions of Bay Area residents!!!
