March Madness Billboard Design Contest


The Indiana Sports Corp is seeking art and design submissions from Hoosier residents 18 and older! The winning submission will be used to visually showcase our Hoosier hospitality for arriving teams, their families, and fans on a prominent billboard on I-70 as visitors enter the city.

This March, Indianapolis will serve as host to the NCAA Men’s Division I Championship. During this time, 68 teams and coaches, families, and a limited number of fans will descend on Indianapolis. All eyes will be on our Circle City and Indiana.

Indiana Sports Corp is seeking original designs created by Hoosier artists (Indiana residents only), ages 18 and older, that can be adapted for use on a print billboard as well as possible other public displays. All submissions should take into consideration the guidelines below. In addition to adhering to the guidelines, judging criteria will be based on the integration of the tournament look and use of welcoming text and/or imagery. Designs will be reviewed by the Indiana Sports Corp, NCAA officials, staff members of the Arts Council of Indianapolis, and leadership of a local Indianapolis marketing and advertising agency. The decision of the judges is in its sole discretion and final.

The winning submission will receive a Final Four Prize Pack including 2021 Final Four commemorative items and a $500 Uber Eats gift card. The winner will be announced on March 4, 2021. No purchase necessary. Presented by Indiana Sports Corp.
