2019 Art Contest For Veterans

The Friends of the Army Women’s Museum Association is proud to sponsor an Art Contest for US Armed Forces veterans from Central Virginia.

The theme for this year’s event is A Salute to the US Military (World War I to Present).

Entrants must register between September 15 – October 5 for acceptance. Entrants must be US Armed Forces Veterans and must live in Central Virginia. Due to limited space at the museum, the number of entries will be limited to 100 individuals. Entrants will be notified of their acceptance promptly to allow time for creation of art work that must be submitted by Oct 23, 2019.

The exhibit will open November 8 and judging will be accomplished by votes from museum visitors during a set period.

Entrants must read the rules on entry qualifications, acceptable art categories, subject matter, sizes, submission requirements and prizes. Any discrepancy between the official Rules and this website or other promotional documents will be decided in favor of the Rules.


By participating in the Art Contest, all entrants fully and unconditionally agree to and accept the Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor as final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth in the Rules. [When you click Download a window will open so you can save the Rules to your computer. This is a .pdf file]
