The National Lentil Festival is seeking art submissions for the 2017 commemorative poster.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Calling all Artists! The National Lentil Festival is seeking art submissions for the 2017 commemorative poster. The artwork will be used for all festival merchandise and advertising for the 2017 event and will be submitted for awards from the Western Festivals & Events Association.
Art can be submitted in any form the artist deems appropriate: originals, prints, drafts, concepts or photos. Artwork not selected will be returned. Once the committee decides on a piece, the festival will work with the artist to develop the final idea, which will include the 2017 dates and “National Lentil Festival 2017” and/or “29th Annual National Lentil Festival.” Once the artwork is complete, it will go to a designer for the poster layout process.
We would like to continue the tradition of including a bug in the poster design. Also, please keep in mind the lentil or festival feel should be incorporated into the poster. Incorporating lentils and/or a festival feel into the poster is also highly encouraged.
The selected artist will receive $1,500 as compensation and will work with the festival director and committee during the creative process to develop the final idea. Once the artwork is completed, it will go to a designer for the poster layout process. The deadline for artwork submissions is December 1, 2016 to the Lentil Festival office at the address listed above. Once selected, artwork becomes the property of the National Lentil Festival. Please include artist contact information with your submission.
