The historic fabric of Northern Kentucky is one of our community's biggest assets.  Connecting with artists to share how craftsmanship and artistry of our historic structures speak to them is an exciting addition to the second year of the NKY Restoration Weekend.

After a great group of submissions for 2013, NKY Restoration Weekend has again decided to have a competition where the winning design will become the official visual icon for Northern Kentucky's annual restoration fair and educational event with a cash prize of $250.  

Concept: Artists are asked to convey the theme of historic architecture, historic building details, craftsmanship, building trades, riverfront landscapes or topics that celebrate the historic architecture, craftsmanship, and materials found in Northern Kentucky.  Artists can use their favorite media(s) and must incorporate all the mandatory information found on the poster contest application.

Artists must be 18 years of age or over and live within a 75-mile radius of the host cities of Covington, Newport or Bellevue.
