UA Poetry Center is hosting its annual Broadside Contest again this May. 

Administered by the School of Art, Book Art and Letterpress Lab, full-time students are eligible for receiving money for their letterpress art. 

Three images were submitted per entry, and a prize of $100 is available for five lucky winners. Expressing this art form into the community is encouraged by those who love its unique and modern feel.

The Tucson community and part-time students are also encouraged to partake in the contest. As long as they are in good standing with the UA Letterpress Lab, the individual may put out their art. However, they are not able to win the monetary prize at the end. 

Although submissions were due March 2, students may still participate by coming to the Poetry Center May 3.

There will be a reception to celebrate the MFA Graduate Readings, while also showcasing the broadside collaboration between the winning writers and artists.
