The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is seeking artists in the Pikes Peak region to help celebrate the 101st running of this historic motorsports event through commemorative posters.

This year’s theme, “Our 2nd Century — The Climb Continues,” looks back on a century of racing while looking forward to the next 100 years of motorsports on Pikes Peak — America’s Mountain. Every year, the hill climb brings local, national and international media exposure to the region.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Open to all ages;
  • Professional, amateur and student submissions welcome; and
  • Live in or have very strong ties to the Pikes Peak region.

A committee will choose one winning artist, and interviews may be requested. The committee also will choose four honorable mention artists. The People’s Choice Award will be a popular vote conducted online via social media and at Fan Fest. Winners will be announced and featured on PPIHC social media and PR.

The cash awards are $1,000 for the winning artist and $250 for the People’s Choice winner.

Digital submissions are due March 31 here, and winners are chosen April 14. The posters will be displayed and distributed in June (specific dates and locations TBA).

The 101st running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is scheduled for Sunday, June 25. Find more information about the hill climb here.
