Veterans Day Poster Guidelines

Submission Guidelines

  • Submissions must be a representation of the diversity of all Veterans who have served.
  • The Committee may select a particular submission but ask the artist to modify the original design. Additional changes may be required prior to printing.
  • Artwork must be 18” x 24” at 300 dots per inch, scale down submissions to 9”x12.”
  • The design will also be used for a 1” x 1.5” lapel pin. Simple designs look best scaled down to lapel pins. If you’d like to submit a modified design for the lapel pin based on the original poster design, you may do so.
  • Submissions are not restricted to “human-centric” images, such as a joint color guard. Images of American icons, monuments or scenery can qualify.
  • Each design must include the words “Veterans Day,” “November 11, 2024,” and “Honoring all who served.”
  • All submissions must include sufficient information to demonstrate that the image is the artist’s work. If the submission contains elements (i.e., photos, illustrations and/or concepts) drawn from copyrighted material, then the artist must include a transferable license showing granted rights to the item’s inclusion and use.

Successful designs are very simple, with minimal imagery and verbiage. To view examples of past winning submissions, visit Veterans Day Poster Gallery.
