Ten Years of Holiday Cards

We’re celebrating 10 years of beautiful student art featured on the President’s annual holiday cards!

Each year, URI students submit their artwork for consideration — photos, illustrations, paintings, multimedia, etc. — and the artist whose piece is chosen for the president’s card by Dave and Lynn Baker-Dooley receives $500. The second-place winner, selected by Jeannette E. Riley, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, receives $250; their artwork is featured on the arts and sciences holiday card.

The winners’ artwork is seen by thousands of professionals nationwide. Deadline for art submissions is usually in late October, but students are encouraged to consider their submissions for the next contest whenever the mood strikes.
