The contest is simple: create a design that represents the celebration that is Sioux Falls Pride and the vibrance of the LGBT community. Our Sioux Falls Pride theme for 2018 is Unity! Join us in our annual contest and help spread some hope in a time when it’s needed most.
*If you’re not particularly Photoshop or Illustrator savvy, that’s okay. If your design is selected, we can work on getting your design into the appropriate format for the t-shirt printers.
Be expressive. Go minimal & geometric or detailed and hand-drawn. The choice is yours!

THERE’S STILL TIME TO APPLY!
Been wondering why you haven’t heard anything about the Sweet Art Show? Seems crazy to think that this Friday would be the night, but after three years, we decided to switch things up! Our 4th Annual Sweet Art show will take place on September 14, 2018 – still boasting the same excellent sweet treats, atmosphere, local art and killer raffle packages. Mark your calendars, ladies and gents! In the meantime, here’s a fun look back at last year’s.
