Davis-based Dos Coyotes is giving fans the chance to combine their creativity and love for the restaurant in its “Kinda Annual, Semi-Occasional Poster Contest.”

The contest, Dos Coyotes’ third one in the past seven years, is a popular event for local diners and artists. The 2010 poster contest generated a substantial number of entries, several of which were turned into T-shirts and other promotional materials for Dos Coyotes. The deadline for entries is June 1, and winners will be announced by June 30.

“I’m almost as passionate about art as I am food,” said Bobby Coyote, Dos Coyotes owner and founder, whose restaurants are known for their colorful, eclectic Southwestern aesthetic. “The Sacramento region has a thriving arts scene, and the poster contest is a fun way to engage our diners while showcasing talented local artists.”

The contest includes two divisions — high school (ninth-12th grade) and adult. The “Best of Show” winners in each division will receive Dos Coyotes gift cards valued at $500 for first place, $250 for second place and $100 for third place. The student who wins “Best of Show” in the high school division also will receive a $500 donation for his or her school art department.

“Dos Coyotes has always been committed to supporting our community,” Coyote said. “We’re thrilled to use this year’s poster contest to extend that commitment to a local high school art department.”

For the first time this year, Dos Coyotes is also including “fan favorite” awards, which will be determined by voting at Dos Coyotes’ Facebook page (facebook.com/mydoscoyotes). The “fan favorite” winners in each division will receive Dos Coyotes gift cards valued at $100 for first place, $75 for second place and $50 for third place. In addition, five people who vote for their favorite poster will each receive a $25 Dos Coyotes gift card. Fan voting will begin on June 7.

Participants can pick up 2-by-3-foot poster paper and entry forms at any Dos Coyotes location (except for the Sacramento International Airport), and finished entries can be dropped off at the restaurants as well. After the contest Dos Coyotes diners can expect to see the top entries on the restaurants’ walls, website and promotional materials, including employee T-shirts.

Dos Coyotes, founded in 1991, has eight locations in Davis, Sacramento, Folsom, Roseville and Elk Grove. Its Davis eateries are in The Marketplace shopping center at 1411 W. Covell Blvd. and the Oakshade Town Center, 2191 Cowell Blvd. For more information, visit doscoyotes.com.
