Dragon Boat Poster Kim Ta
The 2016 Image Design Contest winner was created by Kim Ta

The Colorado Dragon Boat Festival is now accepting entries for our 11th annual Poster Contest. Each year, we call for the creative imaginations of graphic artists — both professional and young students — to have fun illustrating the magic of our event, and submitting their best designs for review by a panel of judges.

The winning design will primarily be used for the festival promotional poster and possibly for collectible merchandise. The winner of the competition will be honored as the Official Festival Poster Artist at the Opening Ceremony on the Main Stage of the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival.


Any individual may participate regardless of age, experience, technical skills, or other indicators. There is a $5 processing fee; there is no limit of entries per person. Student artists currently enrolled in grades 6 through 12 will qualify for the Young at Art awards. There is NO FEE for student artists.

Awards are as follows:
  • 1st place: $300
  • 2nd place: $200
  • 3rd place: $100
  • Young at Art Award (6th-12th Grade): $50
