WPSU-FM hosts art contest for locals to celebrate central PA

Set up your paints and easel, pull out your pastels and pencils, and grab your camera! "Art for the Airwaves," hosted by WPSU-FM, is supporting artistic expression by giving locals of all ages the chance to have their original artwork printed and dispersed as a limited-edition poster.

WPSU-FM is looking for an artist in the listening area to create a poster that demonstrates life or scenery in central Pennsylvania. Three works per artist are allowed and they must be submitted online.

The artwork should be two dimensional and can include drawings, paintings, collages, photography or mixed media. The winner of the contest will be selected by a panel of judges and will be notified the week of March 7. 

During this spring’s radio fundraising campaign in April, the winning artist’s poster will be given away as a pledge gift and the artist will receive thank you mentions on air.

The winner also will receive 50 prints for his or her own use and WPSU will link its website to the artist’s public site for one year or until next year’s competition. 

Artists should submit their original work at www.wpsu.org/fmposter for consideration. No work will be accepted after 5 p.m. Feb. 29.

WPSU serves central Pennsylvania with programming, educational services and community outreach. This public media service produces, acquires and distributes programs that address local interests and reflect the diverse cultural, political, geographic and demographic characteristics of an audience within central Pennsylvania.
