Attention LOCAL Artists/Poster Designers! Sound Unseen, your local film+music+art festival are holding a contest to find the next poster artist for our upcoming festival in Duluth, MN (June 8-12).
After attending Art Crank last weekend, we were inspired by all the many talented artists involved with that show and decided to reach out to our local artists and hold this contest.
Sound Unseen is an 11-year old festival here in Minneapolis, however last year we branched out to the beautiful resort town of Duluth as Sound Unseen Int’l Duluth (SUID). We are proud to be back there again in June and need a new, beautifully designed festival poster for it.
The winner will receive:
-$150.00?-GREAT EXPOSURE! Your design as our official 2011 Sound Unseen Duluth Int’l Festival Poster, which will also be the cover of our Festival Program and will be heavily featured in all print/media materials and websites (both Sound Unseen sites + sponsored/purchased advertising). This will reach 1000?s of people!?- (2) All-Access Festival Pass for SUID
– Submission DEADLINE: APRIL 15th, 2011?- All submissions must be new and original pieces of work by a MN-based artist?- Design must include the text: Sound Unseen International Duluth or Sound Unseen Duluth, the year (2011), our festival dates of June 8-12 and a tagline of “Details + Tickets: soundunseen.com”. Once winner is chosen, winner will have to eventually include our major sponsors at the bottom of the poster.
TIPS FROM THE SU TEAM: If you incorporate some element of Duluth into your design this is a big PLUS (ex. outline of well-known structures there like the lift-bridge, old water towers, lighthouses, etc.). We like bright, readable, attention grabbing, “poppy” designs. Last year’s festival poster is the event photo on this page by Kii Arens.
