Horsing Around: The Hampton Classic Poster Contest Is Back

Shannon Lawlor's 2016 poster The Hampton Classic

The Hampton Classic is hunting for the artist whose work will appear on the poster for its annual horse show in August. The posters, which almost inevitably become collectibles, have long been one of the most recognizable visual emblems of the South Fork. Past Hampton Classic poster artists include Paul Davis, Steven Klein, Jon Register, Richard Mantel, and James McMullan.

Images of the submitted artworks, in the form of jpegs less than 20 megabytes, must be received at info@hamptonclassic.com by March 1, and the winner will be notified by April 15. The subject line of the email must include the words "Poster Submission." The artwork will appear on posters as well as souvenir merchandise. More information, including specifications, is available at the Hampton Classic website.
