The winning work will be chosen through MFA’s People’s Choice Voting Gallery and at the reception. The winning artwork will be considered a donation to Hospice Cup, Inc., and will be the representative image for the 2023 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 March 1 – 31, 2023.
