2021 National Veterans Creative Arts Competition

The 2021 National Veterans Creative Arts Competition is open. Each VA facility determines their own local competition deadline dates with many deadlines as early as April and throughout the summer months. Veterans must work with a staff person from the VA facility where they are enrolled to submit entries into the competition. 

Be sure to check with your VA facility as soon as possible to find out dates for submission of entries into the local competition. If you need assistance in identifying the local point of contact at the VA facility where you are enrolled, please email our national committee at [email protected].

First place winners in local competitions advance to the national level of judging on October 1, 2021 via digital submission. National competition results will be announced in December. First place winners at the national level of the competition will be invited to attend the 41st National Veterans Creative Arts Festival in St. Petersburg, Florida April 18-25, 2022.
