First Place for 2017 Mars Society Poster Contest Announced

A committee of Mars Society staff members took a close look at nearly two dozen creative designs submitted to the 2017 Mars Society Poster Contest. After a longer than expected review period, the winner of the annual competition was selected – Violaine Bourgeais (France).

Graphic artists were asked to submit a poster using the theme “Mars: From Imagination to Reality” for the 20th Annual International Mars Society Convention, set to take place September 7-10 at the University of California Irvine. As usual, the winning design will be used by the Mars Society to help promote its four-day space conference.

With submissions received from around the globe, the organization also announced the second and third place winners of the contest – Jennifer Claudio (U.S.) and Ed Sludden (U.K.) respectively. The Mars Society would like to express its appreciation to all of the talented participants in this year’s contest.
