Writing Contest

It is time once again for one of our favorite events of the year here at the Museum, our annual writing competition! The UMFA Writing Competition focuses on exploring how art affects the individual viewer. The Writing Competition is intended to inspire U of U students from a variety of backgrounds to write a fiction or non-fiction piece in response to a work of art in the UMFA. The topic for this year is “A Picture is Worth 1000 Words”.

Information about the contest, including past winners and entry packets, is available on our website at www.umfa.utah.edu/writing

Winners will receive a $300 cash prize.

We are very excited to see what amazing entries await us this year, especially with the reinstallation of Africa: Arts of a Continent and the upcoming Pablo O’Higgins: Works on Paper exhibition. Come to the Museum, get inspired, and wow us with your writing prowess!

      Hi, Andria!
      This post about the writing contest is from 2010, and there’s not a current writing contest in the works at the UMFA. But I think it could be a great idea. What do you think?
