Calling all Artists…
Every year a magnificent poster is created to advertise and promote this annual event. Each season, a different local artist is chosen to create the poster and each season the artist depicts their idea of what our event is all about. The winning design will have the opportunity to create the 2014 Tuesday Marketplace Poster and have a space at the event, for one night, to showcase their art work as well as be featured on the website. In addition, the winning entry will receive a cash prize of $500.
This is a wonderful opportunity for artists of all mediums and it comes with bragging rights too. (Click on poster images for larger view)
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Included on this page are samples of previous year’s posters. We will not dictate what you should include in the poster, but we do recommend that you choose colors, themes, and objects that reflect the atmosphere and tone of the event. There are also many photos online to generate inspiration.
As this is our 15th Anniversary, we have some specific ideas in mind, please contact us before you submit an entry for this year.
** NOTE** All entires submitted this year will be displayed for voting by the Market goers all season. The winning poster will be used for our 2014 Season.
HOW TO ENTER
To enter this contest we need at least two (2) sketch drawings or samples of what your idea for this poster will look like and copies (or web address) of past work so we may see your style and ability. Download the PDF version & application and turn them in before the deadline, June 1, 2013 and you’re on your way. You may also send or upload electronic files. PLEASE LET US KNOW TO EXPECT YOUR ENTRY by using the form below.
All entries received by the deadline will be reviewed by the Tuesday Marketplace Board of Directors and displayed at the Marketplace for market goers to vote on. Once the Board of Directors and visitors have had the opportunity to view all of the entries, winners will be selected and notified. All entries and the ideas depicted will become property of the Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace, who reserves the right to use the sketches and samples at their discretion. If sketches submitted this year are chosen to be used in subsequent years, the artist of that sketch will be compensated for their work at a flat rate (tbd). A separate contract will be signed and agreed to by both parties in this event.
The winner of the contest will then create the finished piece of art within a given time period and within specific dimensions which the artist will be informed of when they are notified. The finished artwork then becomes the property of the Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace and will be used for advertising, marketing and other printed materials.
Art work for our poster needs to be created in 16” x 20” portrait orientation.
Below event information text can be incorporated into the design or space left for it to be added later:
Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace
Historic Downtown Hillsboro; Main St. & 2nd Ave.
(current season dates and times)
Space also needs to be left to accommodate sponsor logos.
