    artPima County’s Taking Action Against Graffiti (TAAG) Program invites young artists to submit artwork that conveys an effective anti-graffiti message to use on posters for distribution at public libraries, schools and community events across the County.

    The deadline for entries is 5 p.m. Monday, October 30.

    TAAG is conducting the art contest for young people ages 9 to 18 to help educate the community about the negative impact of graffiti.

    Only one artwork can be submitted per person. 

    Artwork can be realistic or abstract and must be suitable for all audiences and contain no obscenities or profanity. 

    Submitted artwork will not be returned. 
    The submitted artwork will be judged on its creativity, originality, visual impact and communication of the effect graffiti has on our community. 

    A four-member committee of Pima County staff will review all entries and select one finalist from each of five age groups: 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18. 

    A three-member panel of community leaders will select the winner from the five finalists. In the event a finalist cannot be selected from each age group, five finalists will be selected from all entries received. 

    The winning design will be awarded a prize worth up to $100 and will be used on TAAG posters. A prize worth up to $25 will also be awarded to each of the four runners-up.
