Do you have an idea for a national Veterans Day poster? If so, the Veterans Day National Committee wants to hear from you. The committee is seeking submissions for the 2014 national Veterans Day poster. The poster is distributed to VA and military installations around the world. It also graces the cover of the official program for the Veterans Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. A selection committee will convene in May 2014 to review submissions and select a finalist.
The final poster must be 18" x 24” at a resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch), but please scale down submissions to 9" x 12” and submit the electronic versions as JPEG images or PDF files, via e-mail to: email@example.com.
Alternatively, send copies of artwork or a CD with artwork files to: Department of Veterans Affairs (002D), 810 Vermont Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20420.
Please do not send originals. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2014. To view Veterans Day posters from previous years, visit our “Poster Gallery.”
Submissions must include sufficient information to demonstrate that the image is the work of the artist and is not copyrighted material, e.g., photos and concepts. The committee may select a particular submission but ask the artist to make modifications to the original design. Additional changes may be required prior to printing.
For more information contact Veterans Day National Committee point of contact Micheal Migliara at (202) 461-5386 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Veterans Day National Committee also selects a number of regional sites for Veterans Day observances throughout the country. From stirring parades and ceremonies to military exhibits and tributes to distinguished veterans, these events serve as models for other communities to follow in planning their own observances.
