A Cedar Valley contest will select new artwork for the cover of the 2016 Waterloo-Cedar Falls Visitors Guide.

Interested artists are encouraged to submit their original art. 

Here is the information on the contest:  Entry deadline is September 25, 2015. 

The Cedar Falls Tourism & Visitors Bureau and Waterloo Convention & Visitors Bureau are seeking submissions for original artwork to be featured on the cover of the 2016 Waterloo-Cedar Falls Visitors Guide (WCFVG).

This award-winning, 80-page publication serves as the official guide to the Cedar Valley and is a great resource for both residents and visitors. Each year, the WCFVG includes a colorful and vibrant cover to inspire and entice potential travelers to plan a trip to the area. And next year, one lucky winner will have the opportunity to showcase their very own original artwork on the cover of the guide.

In 2016, 60,000 guides will be distributed to travelers who request the guide via phone, email and website. Guides will also be available at various tradeshows, hotels, attractions, welcome centers, and visitor centers throughout the state. In addition, a digital version of the guide will be displayed on each of the Bureaus’ websites as well as Courier Communications’ website.
