Just under a week remains to submit an application to enter the public design competition for the 2018 World War I American Veterans Centennial Silver Dollar.
The deadline for Phase One of the competition ends next Thursday, Apr. 28. Before that time, interested artists must submit a digital portfolio with three to five samples of their work.
After the deadline, a jury will select up to 20 artists and they will be invited on May 31 to Phase Two of the design competition. These artists will be paid a fee of $1,000 to submit a design and plaster for the silver dollar’s obverse and reverse. The submissions must be received by July 31.
The winning artist will be announced in January 2017, get paid $10,000 for his or her design and have their initials appear on the commemorative silver dollar.
