Book of Mormon Central Art Competition 2018

Book of Mormon Art Competition 2018

The Book of Mormon is a masterpiece with vivid scenes and evocative narratives that bring one closer to God. Book of Mormon Central uses many images on our website and in our videos to portray Book of Mormon ideas, but we always need more. We want to encourage the creation of new Book of Mormon art to illustrate this powerful book, so that more may come to know that it is "Another Testament of Jesus Christ." If you are an artist or know an artist, share this event and consider participating in our art competition for a chance to win and be featured on our website.

  • First Place: $500
  • Second Place: $350
  • Third Place: $200

This competition is in conjunction with Book of Mormon Day 2018, and the winners will be announced at the annual Book of Mormon Conference in March 2018.
