This is a Department of Veterans Affairs resource. Each year, since 1978, the VA has created a poster in recognition of Veterans Day. Print some of the Veterans Day posters out for your classroom; have your students analyze the various images and their place in history, or have them create their own posters.

Over the years these posters have illustrated the rich history of our country’s service men and women. The poster reflects our pride and patriotism in saluting Veterans while providing the thematic artistry for the year.

The theme for Veterans Day 2022 is “Honor.”  Veterans are proud of their military service in defending our Nation.  Honor reflects the military value and tradition of answering the call to duty.  There is distinct honor in serving to protect our way of life and the Constitution of the United States of America.  We encourage artists to consider Veteran history of service to our Nation and the honor we owe them for fulfilling patriotic duties.

Submission Guidelines

  • Be 18” x 24” at 300 dots per inch, scale down submissions to 9”x12.”
  • The design will be used for a 1” x 1.5” lapel pin. Simple designs look best scaled down to lapel pins. If you’d like to submit a modified design for the lapel pin based off the original poster design, you may do so.
  • Submissions are not restricted to “human centric” presentations, such as a joint color guard. Imagery of American icons, monuments or scenery can qualify, for example, the American flag.
  • Representative of all Veterans who served. The Committee may select a particular submission but ask the artist to make modifications to the original design. Additional changes may be required prior to printing.
  • Design must include the words :Veterans Day, November 11, 2022” and “Honoring all who served.”
  • Include sufficient information to demonstrate that the image is the work of the artist and is not copyrighted material (i.e. photos and concepts).
  • Successful designs are very simple with minimal imagery and verbiage. To view examples of past winning submissions visit:; The Veterans Day Poster Gallery.
