Cleveland Postcard Competition 02.01.12
Extended Deadline: March 22nd, 2012 by midnight EST
For SPACES' upcoming exhibition titled The Cleveland Convention and Visitors Bureau, we are investigating what constitutes tourism and what makes a location a "tourist destination." Ideas of economy, industry, pilgrimage, migration, memorials, entertainment, leisure, lodging, transportation, notable events, and disaster all play into the engines that fuel tourism.
To accompany the exhibition, SPACES is sponsoring a postcard design competition. Postcards play a key role in tourism in that they function as both advertisement and documentation of travel. They often choose to celebrate a city, state, monument, site, or event.
We want you to design a postcard for Cleveland! It can be about Cleveland's history, places, people, food, or anything quintessentially "Cleveland." Each design may be submitted digitally or in person at SPACES.
Ages 3+ may enter. Entries will be judged by a panel of local celebrities and SPACES' staff. Prizes will be awarded and winning submissions will be part of the exhibition The Cleveland Convention and Visitors Bureau at SPACES, May 11 – July 13, 2012 as well as being available for viewing at www.spacesgallery.org.
