Hey everyone!  Travis back with some cool Tampa Bay sports news...kind of.  It's all about the Tampa Bay International Dragon Boat Races. 

The annual poster design contest for the Tampa Bay International Dragon Boat Races has extended its entry deadline from November 1st to November 30th to allow for additional entries to be received. 

The Tampa Bay International Dragon Boat Races will be held for the 7th year on May 1st, 2010.  The poster contest each year yields over 20 entries from local and regional artists.  One lucky winner is picked by a panel of judges and becomes the face of the event for the year. 
The winner of the contest receives $750 and the opportunity to be recognized nationally for their talent, as well as the opportunity to work with the Tampa Bay Dragon Boat Institute on future projects. 

This includes the 10th IDBF World Dragon Boat Racing Championship, being hosted by Tampa in August 2011.  The design is included on the event's posters, t-shirts, and event program cover.
All entrants to the poster contest will be displayed in a prominent location in the City of Tampa, and will also be available for purchase at the silent auction that the Institute hosts during the Paddler's Party, scheduled for April 30th, 2010.
