The Kansas Arts Commission invites Kansas visual artists to submit designs for a new Kansas Arts License Plate. Artists must currently reside in Kansas and be 10 years old and older.
The plate is scheduled for production in 2010 or once funds are raised for its manufacture.
The license plate will be available for all Kansans to purchase for their vehicles. All proceeds will go towards grant programs of the Kansas Arts Commission.
The design should reflect and promote a positive image of Kansas and Kansas arts. The image will be used to promote the arts and the Kansas Arts Commission throughout the state and nationwide.
Submissions must be postmarked by October 15, 2009, or if delivered, received by October 15, 2009. No submissions will be returned.
Kansas Arts Commissioners and staff will narrow the submissions to five finalists. A sample plate for each of the finalists will be posted on the Kansas Arts Commission website and Kansans will be invited to vote for their favorite plate.
The winning design will be announced in January 2010. The artist submitting the winning design will be credited in all promotional material for the license plate and will be prominently featured on the Kansas Arts Commission’s website. Other promotional opportunities may be available. In addition, the winning designer will receive a three-percent royalty fee for all Kansas arts license plates sold.
