About the Congressional Art Competition

Attracting more than 650,000 participants nationwide to date, the competition calls for submissions of paintings, drawings, collages, photographs and computer-generated art.

The winning artwork from each congressional district is exhibited for a full year at the U.S. Capitol. The winner receives two round-trip tickets to Washington D.C. for the annual awards ceremony and launch of the exhibition courtesy of Southwest Airlines. Each congressional district winner also receives a one-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud™, scholarship opportunities from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), and other contributions from national sponsors.
