Soldotna holds art contest for new ‘I voted’ stickers

Artists across three categories can submit their artwork through an online portal accessible at soldotna.org

A contest put on by the City of Soldotna asks local artists to design “I Voted” stickers, with the winning designs to be distributed and used at polling places next Election Day.

According to the contest rules, artists across three categories can submit their artwork through an online portal accessible at soldotna.org. There’s a “Youth” category for middle and high school students under 19 years old and an “Adult” category for those older than 19, as well as a category for younger artists who can design “Future Voter” stickers.

All three categories require residence in the Kenai Peninsula Borough. All submissions need to feature “an original design that celebrates voting and Soldotna, Alaska.”

Designs cannot feature stock photos of AI-generated imagery, among other considerations. They also may not reference candidates or parties, and cannot describe specific dates or years.

A sticker design party will be held at the Soldotna Public Library on Tuesday, running 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. with all art supplies provided.

Submissions for the contest will be accepted until June 15, followed by a closed judging period. In each category, three finalists will be named and a public vote will be held starting July 1 to decide the winners, whose designs will be available at polling sites and absentee voting locations this fall.

Full rules and more information can be found at soldotna.org, under the City Clerk’s office.
