Key West Home Tours Poster Contest winner

2020 winning entry by Gabrielle Wilson:

                        “THEN & NOW”

For many years Old Island Restoration Foundation held poster contests to help advertise the annual event. OIRF brought the tradition back in 2017 for the 58th season and did it again in 2018 for the 59th season. Plans are that we will do this again for the 60th season in 2020.

Artists are invited to submit artwork that captures the OIRF mission which is to preserve the architectural and cultural heritage of Key West and to appeal to the people who go on our Home Tours.

Artwork can be any medium or size, but must be reproducible to an 11x 8.5 inch horizontal image. The winning artist receives a cash prize and their image appears on the poster and advertising for the upcoming season. It costs $20 to enter the contest and entries are accepted between Sept 1 and October 1 of each year. Entry form : Poster Contest Application 2018 PDF

The winners are announced at OIRF’s annual Key West Home Tour Kickoff Parties. (59th Annual Home Tour Kickoff Party-2018) and 58th Annual 2017 Kickoff Party.)
