What Chicago Fringe Festival needs from you: a single design that will be emblematic of Chicago Fringe 2012. We need a design that is so arresting, dynamic, searing, whimsical, mind-bending or otherwise amazing that it will radiate cartoon-like waves of energy. Some further crucial information to help you create the graphic gold we’re panning for:
See your design on CTA ads and Fringe materials distributed all over Chicago! The winner’s design will be the design for the official 2012 Fringe Festival poster and will appear in part or in whole on a wide range of Fringe materials, including ads, tee-shirts, festival programs, pins, banners and more. The winner’s name will appear on the poster and all other materials on which it is practicable to include an artist credit. The winner will also receive a commemorative Fringe button granting entry to all days of the Festival and two complimentary tickets to one Fringe show of choice. And as far is it is practicable, the winner will receive copies of all Fringe paraphernalia and merchandise, including a tee-shirt, featuring the design. Three runners-up will have their designs published on chicagofringe.org.
All entries must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The design size of the file must not exceed 11”x17”, and if chosen as the winner, you will need to supply a version 12x18" at 300 dpi to account for bleed. The design can be saved at a resolution that will enable us to zoom in to see details during judging, but the file size must not exceed 2MB. Designs may be in any medium. Multiple submissions are acceptable.
Your First and Last Name
Your submission must be submitted by 8:00 p.m. on May 22, 2012. Submissions received after the deadline will not be considered for the competition.
