Poster Competition

The Competition

Since 2015, The Rochester Music Hall of Fame has hosted an annual poster competition as a way to showcase the talents of visual artists in our community. Each year 3 winners are selected, with the first place poster chosen to represent the induction ceremony throughout the region in advertisements, etc. The submissions are staggering and selecting the winner always presents a challenge.

If you are an artist interested in participating in our next poster competition, rules and guidelines can be found here.
