35th Annual Tucson Folk Festival – Festival Design Contest
Time to put out a request for submissions for the artwork for the next Tucson Folk Festival! Details below!
Winner Receives: $250 Cash Award
We are looking for a distinctive, colorful, visually exciting design that incorporates the words “35th Annual”” and “Tucson Folk Festival” into the design. The subject should have something to do with folk music incorporating a Tucson feeling in some way, if possible. (See previous festival designs on our website, if desired, under PHOTO GALLERY-Past Festivals!)
- 300 – 600 DPI so it can be enlarged for poster and t-shirts without losing quality;
- Four (4) color, sent in original file folder (ex.: AI or PSD) and a PDF. Consider the colors used for multi-purpose printing.
- Design needs to fit: T-Shirt, 5.5 x 8″ Program Cover
- Design Specs for Flyer: 8.5 x 11″ Flyer; Poster: 11 x 17″ (These specs can be utilized for handbills and digital fliers)
- We would appreciate it if it didn’t have borders so it can be versatile to be dropped into other publications;
- It should have the lettering 35th Annual TUCSON FOLK FESTIVAL. Please include the name of the typeface used. Keep in mind it needs to present well on the cover of the program, on a t-shirt, and on posters and flyers. Simplicity works better for t-shirts so keep that in mind. Consider the colors used for multi-purpose printing.
