CP State Annual Art and Photo Contest

CP State will, once again, hold an art contest from which we will produce a commemorative poster. This year, more than ever, we believe it is important that we continue to offer opportunities for the people we support to express themselves through art.


Featuring Artwork by People with Disabilities from CP State Affiliates

We know that it may be more difficult for you this year, but we are asking that each Affiliate select and submit one piece of original artwork created by someone receiving services from your agency.  It must be submitted by the Affiliate. There is no minimum or maximum age. You may submit artwork by children or adults, but please submit just one piece of original artwork per Affiliate.

Please email a high-resolution (at least 240 dpi) picture of your Affiliate’s entry to Bill DeVoe at wdevoe@cpstate.org by September 14, using your Affiliate name and “Art Show” in the subject line. We will display the pieces in a virtual art gallery during our virtual conference October 26-28. A commemorative poster will be printed and sent to affiliates.

Please make sure that we have permission to publicly display the work and the artist’s name.  We ask that you obtain permission to use any of the art on our website or in some of our Conference-related materials. Click here top download the permission form. Please complete the form and send it with the artwork.


We will also conduct a photography exhibit. Make sure to submit work that we have permission to display publicly and on line A permission form is attached.

We would also like to have permission to use any photograph submitted in publications or online.

Please send us a digital version of the photo so that we may incorporate all the entries in the conference materials.
