Each year, the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation presents a series of awards for creative works furthering the understanding of Marine Corps history, traditions, culture or service. Marines and civilians are eligible to submit their own artistic entries or the distinguished work of others.
It’s free and quick to enter. Award winners receive a $1,000 cash prize, medallion and a brick with their name in Semper Fidelis Memorial Park, outside the National Museum of the Marine Corps.
The deadline is Jan. 6, 2018.
Winners will also be invited to the awards ceremony at the National Museum of the Marine Corps. The event is a black tie gala attended by Marine Corps leadership.
