We are looking for a young artist to design the cover of the 2017 Bel Air 4th of July Celebration Brochure!

2009 cover art for Bel Air July 4 program

If you are an artist between the ages of 5 and 14, get your creativity flowing and give designing a try while following these simple guidelines:

  • The design should reflect this year's theme: ONE FROM MANY — CELEBRATING THE CREATION OF THE UNITED STATES!

  • Any medium is welcome (crayon, watercolor, etc.) as long as the design is colorful. Use dense colors if possible — they look best!

    cover art instructions
  • NO WORDS should be included in the design.

  • Designs should be 11" wide x 17" deep (see sample, right), with a half-inch margin all around the art ("portrait" layout, not "landscape" layout). Scale sizes are ok, for instance 5 1/2" wide x 8 1/2" deep.

  • Make sure that the name, age, and contact information of the artist is written on the back of the design. The winning artist will be contacted by the committee for further information.

  • SUBMIT your design by JUNE 1, 2017, to the Bel Air Independence Day Committee, P.O. Box 724, Bel Air, Maryland 21014, or drop it off at 508 Rock Spring Road, Bel Air (offices of Balsamo, Stewart, Lutters & Ruth), no later than JUNE 1. DO NOT DROP OFF ENTRIES AT BEL AIR TOWN HALL!

  • More than one entry may be submitted by each artist.

  • We will attempt to the best of our ability to return all entries!

  • Submissions may be displayed on our web site, printed in the program or used by the Independence Day Committee for its purposes.

The winning artist will receive a cash award, have his or her photo printed in color as the front cover of the official 2017 Bel Air 4th of July Brochure, AND will be featured on the official REVIEWING STAND at the parade as a Special Guest!
