SM PIER — Once again the Santa Monica Pier Restoration Corp. is inviting talented student, amateur and professional designers to submit their vision for the 26th annual Twilight Dance Series in the form of a poster.

The winning design becomes the primary communications piece for the concert series, used in display advertising, posters, flyers, banners and more.

The artist who creates the winning design will receive $750 and their design becomes a collector’s item and keepsake from the 26-year-old series, officials with the pier said.

In addition, the winner will receive a VIP package for the summer, including a backstage pass to the series. All designs will be displayed on the pier inside the Carousel Building from March 26 through April 23 to recognize the hard work of all the artists participating.

All entries are due on March 12. This year’s winner will be chosen via a secure Internet poll at Visitors to the site will only be able to vote one time for one poster. Voting will take place throughout mid-March and early April.

Past winners include Ginna Hepp with “Summer Pier Nights,” and Rachel Malvonay with “100 Years of Memories.”

Contest rules, design specification and entry forms are available on the pier’s Web site. For more information, call (310) 458-8786.
