We’re doing a live, stage musical of MacGyver and need a poster and graphics for the show.

So, why are we asking you to help us design those?  Well, for the same reason we cast the lead role of MacGyver out of the audience for every performance!

Because…There’s a MacGyver in everyone and anyone can be MacGyver.

Cash Prizes!

1st place: YOUR ART could be the poster and graphics for MacGyver: The Musical + $1,500 + 2 tickets to the show!

2nd place: $750 + 2 tickets to the show!

3rd place: $500 + 2 tickets to the show!

The MacGyver Foundation will match all of the cash prizes in full with a donation to one of the following three charities; cavu.org, newstorycharity.org and directrelief.org.  Each winner will get to choose one of those charities to receive a donation equal to the amount of their prize.

So Picture this...

It’s November 1989 in East Berlin, and MacGyver is the only one who can stop the world from descending into nuclear war… And all he’s got to help him is a punk rock band and whatever he can find…Imagine that!

Contest is open from November 1st thru December 13th, 2021 … so get busy!

  • Since the role is cast out of the audience for each performance, we are looking for aesthetic/style rather than a defined figure as “MacGyver”.

  • Finally, this show is flat-out FUN! So, your design should reflect that
