HANNIBAL, Mo. — Entries are being accepted through August 1 for the eighth annual Art in the Open billboard art competition. The contest is open to anyone age 8 or older who lives within a 50-mile radius of Hannibal. The contest is being coordinated by the Hannibal Arts Council in partnership with Robinson Outdoor and Independent’s Service Company.

The top winners in the adult and youth divisions will have their images prominently featured on a Robinson Outdoor digital billboard in Hannibal. The goal of the project is to promote the arts in the Hannibal area and capture the creative spirit all art forms represent in northeast Missouri and western Illinois.

Area artists, artisans, craftsmen, photographers, writers, actors, dancers and performers are encouraged to review the guidelines to learn how to participate. The contest is not just open to visual arts.  

Contest guidelines and instructions on how to enter are available at https://hannibalarts.com/gallery/art-in-the-open/.  Questions regarding the competition should be directed to the Hannibal Arts Council at 573-221-6545 or findit@hannibalarts.com.
