Artown is now accepting submissions for the 2017 poster concept.

The organization said in a statement the chosen artwork will be used to promote Artown's more than 500 events.

The artist will also be contracted at $3,000 and will receive 100 posters from Artown.

Each person can only submit two concepts, which cannot come from existing portfolios. Organizers say the concept does not need to be fully complete, but it should illustrate the artist's vision.

All applicants are encouraged to submit their work regardless of experience level.

Anyone submitting work is asked to include a bio with contact information, no more than two concepts and a statement to support and describe each concept. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Nov. 18, at 4 p.m.

Submissions will be accepted via email at or in person at the Artown office on 528 W. First Street in Reno.
