The Carroll County Farm Museum is now accepting entries for the annual Maryland Wine Festival poster design competition.

The winning design will be reproduced on posters, T-shirts, brochures and other promotional materials for the 2014 Maryland Wine Festival, which will be held Sept. 20-21.

The winning artist will also receive a $1,000 cash prize.

Sykesville resident John Kachik won the 2013 contest.

Any two-dimensional media may be used to design the poster, including painting, drawing, collage, photography, or a computer-generated design. Artists must be 18 years of age or older and a Maryland resident to enter.

The winning design and five honorable mentions will be chosen by a qualified panel of judges from the designs submitted.

The Farm Museum must receive all entries by 3 p.m. March 14.
