Poster Contest Submission Info
Participate in the show for a chance to win an entire year subscription to Adobe® Creative Cloud™, gift cards, and more! Then come see your work at the Poster Show on August 28th, and we’ll even give you a copy to take home. Attendees of the party will vote for their favorite to win -- so bring your friends! We’re so excited to see your celebration-themed poster! RSVP here >

To enter the contest, create a poster around the theme “celebrate” and submit your design by noon on August 15 to AIGA Iowa has teamed up with EDWARDS to offer top of the line digital printing, and your design will be printed on 12x18 heavy matte paper donated by Field Paper Company. Don’t worry about picking it up or dropping it off -- just email us your file, and we’ll take care of the rest! View specific file set-up instructions below.

Set up your file to 12" by 18" with a 1" white border (for a design size of 10x16), and save your design as a pdf. We will not be able to accept jpegs or any other file format. Make sure the resolution is 300dpi with no bleed, and name your file with your first and last name (e.g. JOHNSMITH.pdf).

Each participant may submit up to two poster designs. Poster entries must be emailed to by August 7th. We will be unable to accept files after this date.

If you prefer to make your own screen-printed or other hand-crafted poster instead of submitting a digital file, just contact Brianna Dawson at to make arrangements. These posters must be the same size as the other posters –- 12" by 18" with a 1" white border.
