SEATTLE – Washington State Ferries is celebrating its busiest sailing season with a summer schedule cover contest themed “Summer Sightings on the Ferry.” 

Students in grades nine through 12 have an opportunity to have their original artwork on upcoming summer ferry schedules. 

The winning artwork will be featured on the cover of over 985,000 summer sailing schedules this year. Those schedules will be distributed aboard the 22 ferries in the system, inside each of the 10 terminals and throughout communities in the region. The winner and five finalists will also be featured on the WSF website, WSF Twitter and in the WSF Weekly Update newsletter. 

The ferry system has held two consecutive cover art contests, for the winter 2017 and spring 2017 schedules, and has decided to continue offering the opportunity to other students. This is the first contest to allow computer graphic design submissions, as well as those produced by hand.

How to submit artwork
Artwork will be accepted online via Survey Monkey or mail through Monday, April 10. A complete list of submission requirements can be found on the WSDOT blog.

Washington State Ferries, a division of the Washington State Department of Transportation, is the largest ferry system in the U.S. and safely and efficiently carries 24 million people a year through some of the most majestic scenery in the world.  For breaking news and the latest information, follow WSF on Twitter.
