Introducing the Hospice Cup Poster Competition

Hospice Cup, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1981 to help local and regional hospices raise funds for patient programs. In collaboration with Maryland Federation of Art (MFA), the organization hosts an annual competition for a piece of artwork to serve as the backdrop for their yearly poster. Artists are invited to submit two pieces of art to this all-hang exhibition and the winning work will be chosen through MFA’s People’s Choice Voting Gallery and at the reception. The winning artwork is considered a donation to Hospice Cup, Inc. and will be the representational image for the 2022 Hospice Cup Event and will be reproduced on posters, t-shirts, and other promotional material. Work submitted for the poster competition will be on display in MFA’s online People’s Choice Voting Gallery from April 1 – 28, 2022. The winner will be announced during a reception held on the evening of April 28, 2022, featuring the top four pieces. Artwork may be offered for sale. Any original 2D work in any media is eligible for entry. There is no fee to enter work for consideration. For more information, please visit hospicecup.org.
