North American Auto Show Announces High School Poster Contest

The 22nd Annual High School Poster Contest is open to all Michigan residents enrolled in grades 10 through 12. An independent panel of recognized representatives from the local art community will judge the contest. This year, the NAIAS will choose winners in 16 categories.

"The poster contest is always a fun way to involve the next generation of automotive enthusiasts in our community and never fails to amaze us with the incredible young talent that comes from Michigan, " said Doug Fox, Chairman of the 2010 NAIAS. "We hope that this helps encourage a lifetime interest in not only the automotive industry but the art community as well."

Winning posters will be displayed at the 2010 NAIAS and reproduced in the official NAIAS program, which is available to the public, corporate executives and automotive suppliers. Winning posters may also be displayed on the official NAIAS web site,

In 2009 NAIAS had a record breaking 660 entries from 64 different high schools. The contest was established to engage the creative minds of Michigan's students and encourage careers in automotive design while recognizing local art communities for their talents.

Posters must be original artwork, 25" x 21" in size, two-dimensional and camera ready. The poster theme must be automotive related, and any mixed media suitable for reproduction as a poster is allowed, including computer-generated graphics. All subject matter must be in good taste.

Posters must contain all of the following copy: "North American International Auto Show 2010, Detroit, and Cobo Center." The entry deadline is November 18, 2009.
