2020 Calgary Stampede Poster

The Calgary Stampede poster has become an iconic piece of The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.  Originally created as the central marketing tool for the event, the poster has evolved into a celebration of western art. This is the second time in our history the the Stampede poster has been created by a youth artist.

Posters will be available for purchase in Calgary Lammle's locations in late November 2019.

The 2020 Calgary Stampede Poster was created by 17 year-old Ariel Clipperton, the youngest poster arist in Stampede history.


 “Ariel’s work is a unique perspective for the poster,” says Peers. “A competitor’s point of view of the Calgary Stampede Rodeo is something we don’t see often.” 


Clipperton’s piece showcases western culture, but also shares a unique behind-the-scenes perspective of the Stampede Rodeo. With more than 30,000 printed, the Stampede poster will be distributed worldwide, and will be seen on official Stampede 2020 merchandise.


“I wanted everyone looking at the poster to connect in one way or another,” explains Clipperton. “Whether you can see yourself in the crowd or as the cowboy, I wanted it to be a piece that everyone can connect to and that is where I found my inspiration.” 


The poster artwork was unveiled at the Calgary French & International School, where Clipperton has attended since pre-school and received mentorship and encouragement to enter the contest from her art teacher. As the winner of the 2020 Calgary Stampede Poster Competition, Ariel is also the recipient of a $10,000 Scholarship, generously provided by the Brandon Flock Foundation.


The Youth Poster Competition program began two years ago, engaging youth from across Alberta in a unique learning and development opportunity. This program celebrates young artists, inviting them to be a part of history by creating the iconic Calgary Stampede poster and receiving one of the largest art scholarships in Canada.
