MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — The state is teaming up with Manchester's Currier Museum of Art for a poster competition that highlights what makes New Hampshire special.

Posters can feature illustration, photography, typography, mixed media or other graphic design techniques. The competition is open to New Hampshire residents and will be judged in three categories: youth, adult amateur and adult professional.

The public will pick the top 30 posters through online voting, and a panel of artists and state officials will pick 15 semifinalists.

The entry deadline is July 8.Winners will be announced Aug. 1.
