HANNIBAL, Mo. — Entries are being accepted for the ninth annual Art in the Open billboard art competition. The contest is open to adults 18 years of age or older and youths ages 8 to 17 who live within a 50-mile radius of Hannibal.

There is no entry fee to enter up to four digital images. The contest is being coordinated by the Hannibal Arts Council in partnership with Robinson Outdoor.

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 of art forms represented 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, as the contest is not just open to visual arts. 

The deadline to enter is April 15. 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.
