Poster & Media Competition

Saint Paul Art Crawl Fall 2017

Fall 2017 Art Crawl Poster

warning icon If you registered as an “Individual Artist” by January 23rd, you were eligible to participate in the Art Crawl Poster and Media Competition. The competition was free to enter, and the winning images will be featured on the Art Crawl Postcard and highlighted in a two–page spread in the print catalog, as well as in our digital version of the catalog, online directory & gallery, press releases, and more.

Each season the Saint Paul Art Crawl selects a panel of three Poster and Media Competition Jurors who come from a diverse artistic background and have advanced knowledge and experience within the arts and community. These Jurors are provided artist submissions through a blind process allowing each to view the image without any information about the artist. The Jurors then select one Poster Winner and nine Media Winners based on judging criteria that includes such points as representing the diverse Saint Paul Art Crawl community of artists, artwork that has a high level of artistic merit, and artwork that creates a strong emotional/esthetic reaction to the viewer. With new Jurors each season as well as a strong, objective process the selections are constantly changing and, over the seasons, reflect a wide array of artistic styles and mediums.
