Artists: Design the Official 2023 County Pride Decal
In preparation for Pride Month in June, the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of Community Partnerships are calling on artists and designers to create the county’s official 2023 Montgomery County Pride decal.
Submissions are due Wednesday, June 1, and should be submitted electronically on the MontgomeryCountyPride.org website. The county’s LGBTQ+ Advisory Board will choose up to five final designs to be displayed at Pride Month events and on social media for public voting.
The winning design will be printed and distributed for use by businesses, nonprofit organizations, county government and others to show support for LGBTQ+ communities in Montgomery County. The winning design from the youth/young adult category will be printed for use at youth-serving establishments and schools.
Submissions will be accepted in two categories—Youth/Young Adults (under 23) and Adults (ages 23 and older).
Designs should include consideration of the following values and themes:
- Intersectionality: recognition that sexual orientation and gender identity or expression are layers of one’s identity, and that race, ethnicity, ability, national origin and other characteristics are important as well.
- Inclusion of trans and gender expansive communities.
