2019 UPR Art Mug Contest

Jan 14, 2019

To all of the many creative and artistic UPR listeners, we want YOU to participate in the Annual UPR Art Mug Contest!

Please submit your best Utah or radio-themed artwork to katie.swain@usu.edu for a chance to have your design printed on the 2019 mug.

Submissions are due by Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2019

After Valentine’s Day, check back so you can vote on your favorite designs. The top design will be printed on the 2019 mug, which will be available during our Spring Pledge Drive in March, and the top 12 designs will be printed in the annual UPR Art Calendar, available during our Fall Pledge Drive later this year.

About the Competition

What does Utah Public Radio mean to you? What do you see when you listen on your radio, in your car, on your phone or online? Your design should be an interpretation or in appreciation of UPR, its programming, and the station's home in Utah.

All styles of artwork from cartoon to watercolor to photography and beyond are welcome.

We would love to see you incorporate the year (2019), UPR, Utah Public Radio, or other relevant text into your design. You can even incorporate our logo (see below)!
