Draw the Districts – Call for Artists

Our canvas is Tacoma, what’s yours?!

Experience Tacoma is seeking artists to create a map of the 15 Tacoma Business Districts. Our website and following is growing by the day as we whole heartedly promote and support local businesses, attractions and events. What we lack is a map, brought to life with a creative spin to spotlight the list of districts we serve. That’s where you come in! Join the creative contributors and Tacoma enthusiasts who are the voice and vision behind Experience Tacoma, as the award-winning artist of our new district map!

how to enter
Just be sure to include reference to all 15 Tacoma Business Districts as pinpointed on the sample map. Submit a high-resolution PDF to Experience Tacoma by July 15th. The top 5 entries, voted by our marketing team, will then be released for a public vote online and in the community during the first week of July. (If chosen, digital designs may need to be resubmitted as a working file to edit for varying publishing purposes.)

To learn more about each of these noteworthy neighborhoods, visit the district pages on our website or simply follow the sample map and experience them for yourselves!

the winner
The winning artist will be announced when the design is released and published across platforms including the Experience Tacoma homepage, social media, print materials and merchandise like our much-anticipated tote bags launching in time for Tacoma’s plastic bag ban! The artist will be awarded a grand prize of $250, sponsored by Experience Tacoma’s community partner M Agency, and will also be honored with a photo and bio on our Creative Contributors page. The map design will live on as a crucial part of the Experience Tacoma brand.

For the love of Tacoma … let’s get creative!
