Veterans Day National Committee Seeks Poster Submissions

Attention photographers, graphic designers and artists. The Veterans Day National Committee, which consists of representatives from major veterans service organizations and is chaired by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, is seeking submissions for the 2007 national Veterans Day poster.

The poster is distributed to more than 110,000 schools nationwide, military installations around the world, and to federal agencies in the nation’s capital. It also graces the cover of the official program booklet for the Veterans Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

The Veterans Day National Committee will convene in May 2007 to review all submissions and select a finalist. The final poster must be 18x24” at 300 dots per inch, but please scale down submissions to 9x12” and submit electronic versions as jpg images or PDF files via e-mail to: vetsday@va.gov.

Alternatively, send copies of artwork or a CD with artwork files to: Department of Veterans Affairs (002C), 810 Vermont Ave., NW, Washington, D.C., 20420. Please do not send originals. To view Veterans Day posters from previous years, please visit http://www.va.gov/vetsday and click on “Poster Gallery”. Submissions should include sufficient information to demonstrate that the image is the work of the artist and is not copyrighted material (i.e. photos and concepts).
