For the last five fund drives, we at Public Radio WBHM 90.3 FM have had the pleasure of working with some of Birmingham’s best and brightest artists to produce the designs in our popular pint glass series.

Now it’s your turn. How do you “see” WBHM? What’s your vision of public radio in North Central Alabama? Where does your imagination take you when you listen to public radio?

Enter The WBHM Artist Challenge and let us know! Just download the rules and guidelines below, set your inner artist free, and submit your design by July 31, 2015! Entries will be narrowed to three finalists by WBHM’s Friends Board and Junior Advisors, and our listeners will get to vote for the winning design.

For some inspiration, let’s look back at the designs from the last two and a half years. Our artistic odyssey began with Bethanne Hill whose design transported us into her imagination.
