Celebrate Southlake’s Birthday with the Mayor’s Alliance 2020 Poster Contest

Southlake is turning 64 on September 22 and everyone is invited come together to share their spirit and celebrate the City we love and call home! To kick-off the celebration, the Mayor’s Alliance for Unity and Culture is hosting a city-wide poster contest, calling for submissions of original art by Friday, September 25.

The theme of the contest is “We are Southlake!” and each artist is asked to visually represent what they love and are celebrating about our community this birthday. Participants are asked to display the posters or art in your windows or front yard for the community to see and enjoy throughout during the City’s birthday week September 20 – 26.

Mayor Laura Hill and the Mayor’s Alliance for Unity and Culture will judge entries and select winners. Winners will be announced September 29.

Art submissions will be judged by age category (see official rules for more information). The winners of each category will have their art displayed on the light poles throughout Southlake Town Square this fall! All posters submitted will be included in a celebratory mosaic, also exhibited in Southlake Town Square, to share the unity and spirit of Southlake.

All art must be the original work of the entrant and should be finished and unframed. Any artistic medium or size is acceptable, but entries must be submitted in vertical/portrait orientation. Winning submissions will be displayed on the light poles in Town Square and may require cropping to fit. Full art contest submission guidelines can be found on the contest website and all guidelines must be met to qualify for entry.
