The folks who are in charge of managing the Santa Monica Pier are inviting artists of all levels to submit their vision for the 28th annual Twilight Dance Series scheduled for this summer.

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 a VIP package for the series, including backstage passes to each concert.

All entries are due on April 16 at the pier’s office by 5 p.m. local time. This year’s winner will be chosen via a secure Internet poll on, organizers said. Visitors to the site will only be allowed to vote once. Voting will take place after April 16 and through the end of the month.

The winner of the 2011 poster contest was Andrew Kligier, a native of Santa Monica, with his design entitled “Sounds of Sunset.”
