Legendary producer J Dilla‘s non-profit organization has announced that it will be holding the So Far to Go International art contest, promoting arts programs in urban communities.

Run by Dilla’s mother Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, the J Dilla Foundation has partnered with La Famiglia magazine and 323East gallery to hold the contest via website Art4Dilla.com. Entrants are encouraged to upload original artworks to the website, which will be voted upon by users of the site. The winning design will be printed on posters, and limited edition Giclee prints, available for purchase, and signed by the artist and Ma Dukes. All proceeds will be donated to the J Dilla Foundation to support its various community initiatives, such as the Pay It Forward and Be Instrumental programs.

“The J Dilla Foundation seeks to be a staple in the movement for progressive music education,” Ma Dukes said in a statement “We also hope to be leaders in the efforts to enhance and develop arts programs in urban communities.”

The J Dilla Foundation was created to celebrate the memory of the influential producer, James “J Dilla” Yancey, who died in 2006 of Lupus. For more information, or to enter the contest, click here.
