MPR 50th Anniversary Art Contest

MPR 50th Anniversary Art Contest

In 2017, Minnesota Public Radio (“MPR”) turns 50, and to kick off the celebration we want to hear from you. If you can visually represent what MPR has meant to you or to Minnesota for the past 50 years, show us - with art!

One submission will be chosen from among all eligible entries to be reproduced on a special 50th anniversary commemorative calendar to be used as a membership premium, which will be merchandised and displayed on our website throughout the year. Separate panels of judges consisting of certain MPR on-air personalities and staff, as well as representatives of the Minnesota artistic community will select the finalists and, ultimately, winning design.
