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, Inc. (MFA), the organization hosts an annual competition for a piece of artwork to serve as the backdrop for their yearly poster. 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 2024 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 29 – April 11, 2024. The winner will be announced during a reception held on the evening of April 25 from 6 – 8 PM, featuring the top four pieces. For more information, visit
