Bayfield announces rules for Apple Festival posterThe Bayfield Apple Festival is inviting artists of all ages and skill levels to enter two contests: the 2010 Bayfield Apple Festival Button Logo Contest and the 2010 Bayfield Apple Festival Poster Contest.
The Bayfield Apple Festival is inviting artists of all ages and skill levels to enter two contests: the 2010 Bayfield Apple Festival Button Logo Contest and the 2010 Bayfield Apple Festival Poster Contest. For almost 50 years, artists across the Midwest have submitted artwork to be considered for use as the annual Apple Festival button logo that will appear on festival buttons. Submissions for the Annual Apple Festival poster will be accepted as well.
The Apple Festival is Northern Wisconsin’s largest and best-known event featuring food, arts and crafts, live entertainment, a carnival, and family fun.
Submission Guidelines for both the button logo and the poster include the following.
Both designs must contain the words “Bayfield Apple Festival 2010.” You must also include “49th,” “October 1, 2 & 3” and “Bayfield, WI.” All submissions should reflect apples and the harvest theme.
We accept computerized art. If graphics are not computer generated, indicate where the text is to be placed. Our office can later add the text digitally. For computer-generated art, use any of the following software: Illustrator, Freehand, Quark, InDesign or Photoshop. Macintosh format must be submitted on CD ROM. All lines and edges should be crisp.
Create your design as large as possible, but do not exceed 8” x 10” for the button logo and 18” x 24” for the poster.
Provide a color version of each design indicating how you expect the colors to be used. Up to four colors (including black) may be used for the button logo while all colors may be used for the poster.
Deadline for submission is May 28. Entries must be e-mailed or postmarked by this date in order to be considered.
Selection of winners will be based on design, theme, reproducibility and craftsmanship. The winning artist will receive media coverage and a cash prize.
Upon submission, all artwork becomes the property of the Bayfield Apple Festival. The Bayfield Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Bureau reserves the right to administrate the use of the winning designs.
Artwork should be e-mailed to email@example.com or mailed to: Bayfield Apple Festival, P.O. Box 138, Bayfield, WI 54814.
