2020 Census Poster Contest
To encourage broad participation in the 2020 Census, the City of San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) invite Santa Clara County college students to submit original poster designs around the Everyone Counts 2020 Census theme. The Everyone Counts theme is a radical approach to inclusivity: if you reside either permanently or temporarily in Santa Clara County, regardless of your citizenship status, regardless of whether or not you own a home, regardless of your age, racial or ethnic origins, sex, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disability or age, if you are here you deserve to be counted!
A panel of experts will review eligible design submissions and up to 5 designs will be selected to run as 2020 Census advertisements on VTA operated buses, trains, and transit real estate. Up to 5 artworks will be selected as finalists to be reprinted as 2020 Census posters. Artists will receive an honorarium of $750 if their design is selected for reproduction. Up to 5 artworks may be selected for honorable mention.
