Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
The 2013 USA Pro Challenge will again host a nation-wide contest inviting artists to create a national event poster that will be seen throughout the world. All types of artists – professional, amateur, aspiring – are encouraged to let their creativity flow and submit their designs via the USA Pro Challenge Facebook page beginning March, 25, 2013. Entries will be accepted until Friday, April 19th, with the winners being announced on Friday, May 10th.
Artists will have plenty to draw upon as the 2013 Pro Challenge route guides the world’s elite cyclists through some of the most picturesque settings in the country.
“Being able to combine scenic backdrops, the intense competition of the USA Pro Challenge and the creative eye of artists should result in some of the most stunning portrayals of our sport we have ever seen,” said Shawn Hunter, CEO of the USA Pro Challenge. “We saw great success with an incredible increase of submissions and participation in the 2012 contest and we look forward to seeing the talent and creativity of our community once again.”
Once entries are submitted, the race’s thousands of loyal Facebook fans will have a chance to cast their votes for the ten best national posters. From there, executives of the Pro Challenge will select the winner. The winner will receive four passes to the VIP hospitality of their choice in addition to having his/her poster produced and sold to race fans both online and onsite during the race August 19-25.
All entries must be submitted via the USA Pro Challenge Facebook contest page (only online entries will be eligible). This requires either that the artwork be in digital media format or that a digital photograph of the artwork be posted in accordance with the rules, terms and conditions adopted by Facebook. Each file must be in JPEG format and otherwise comply with Facebook’s requirements for posting. Multiple entries may be submitted, but must be submitted at the same time.
This is a skill-based contest and chance plays no part in the determination of winners. There is no fee to enter and no purchase is required. Official rules for the program can be found at http://www.facebook.com/USAProCyclingChallenge.
