SSA Holding Art Contest


FALMOUTH – The Steamship Authority  is accepting entries for its annual art contest for students in grades K-12 living in the SSA’s constituent communities.

Students living on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket and in Barnstable, Fairhaven, Falmouth, and New Bedford are invited to participate.

Thirteen prize winners will be selected and the winning artwork will be showcased in a 2020 calendar, as well as displayed on the SSA’s website and exhibited on board SSA ferries.The contest theme “Sail into Imagination” was conceived of to encourage students to share their vision of traveling aboard SSA ferries and to inspire artistic interpretations of growing up by the sea.

“We have really enjoyed seeing the innovative art entries for the past three years,” said Robert Davis, general manager of the SSA.  “Each artist brings a fresh perspective to traveling on our ferries and we are looking forward to another creative collection for our 2020 calendar.”

The contest has two new opportunities for local students to win. All entrants will be eligible for a prize just for entering the contest, and there will be a drawing from the pool of winning entrants for a three-park combo pass for a family of four to the Cape Cod Inflatable Park in West Yarmouth, Massachusetts.

As in past years, in addition to having their art displayed in the calendar and on SSA ferries, all 13 winners will be awarded a $100 gift card for passenger travel aboard a SSA ferry and will receive an invitation to attend the official art unveiling reception hosted by the SSA this July.

Entries submitted by U.S. Mail may be directed to the SSA’s Marketing Department at 509 Falmouth Road, Suite 1C, Mashpee, MA 02649.

Entries may be hand-delivered at any SSA terminal on or before April 30, 2019, but they must be clearly marked: Steamship Authority Art Contest, ATTN: Kimberlee McHugh, Marketing Department.

All entries delivered to SSA terminals or submitted via US Mail must include a hard copy of the contest entry form/release and must be received by SSA on or before April 30, 2019.
