Mile High Band Association’s 2022 Jazz & Beyond Festival Committee is sponsoring an art contest for northern Nevada artists, including teachers and students. Selected entries in the competition may be used to promote the festival, and the winning entry will be featured on the festival’s advertising poster and program cover. Festival T-shirts this year may also feature the winning design. The entry deadline is May 17, 2022. Participation is free.

Artist Katelyn Lehmann shows her winning artwork, “Listen to the Music,” used for the cover of the 2021 Jazz & Beyond program. Image used with permission.

The artwork will be judged by the Jazz & Beyond committee. The winner of the competition will receive a certificate of appreciation from the Jazz & Beyond – Carson City Music and Art Festival and a cash award of $100.
