The 7th Annual Asian Heritage Street Celebration will be held on Saturday May 21, 2011 in front of the Asian Art Museum, leading up to the Little Saigon District.

Organizers are looking for this year’s innovative graphic artists to create an exciting and unique image. The winning artwork will become part of the personality for this year’s event and will be featured in a wide-scale multi-media marketing campaign in both the mainstream and Asian Pacific markets in a combination of posters, postcards, Muni bus ads, BART banners, bus shelters, newspaper ads and in a TV commercial. The winner will also earn a $500 grand prize. All entries will be posted at

The Asian Heritage Street Celebration gathers all communities among Asian Pacific Islanders in the San Francisco Bay Area, and enables cross cultural interaction through sharing of cultures, promoting Asian inspired arts and crafts vendors, creation of innovative programs and entertaining activities for visitors and participants.

“The Asian Heritage Street Celebration is the largest pan Asian street fair nationwide, highlighting the diversity of the Asian American community. The poster contest is an amazing opportunity for any up-and-coming artist to have their work showcased in such a huge scale!” said Ellen Oh of Kearny Street Workshop.
