Richmond, BC – The 11th annual Richmond Maritime Festival sails into Richmond on August 8-10, 2014. But before we send out invitations to the pirates and mermaids, we call upon all Richmond-based visual artists and graphic designers to create a fresh and relevant poster image that reflects Richmond’s maritime heritage. Interested artists are asked to submit their portfolio by Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
The chosen poster image will be exposed throughout Metro Vancouver in various materials such as print and online advertising, brochures, transit shelter advertising, site decor and other promotional materials over the summer. The selected artist will be rewarded with a $500 honorarium.
Artists who wish to be considered for this project are invited to submit a portfolio of up to five work samples (in electronic format). Submission instruction details can be found at www.richmondmaritimefestival.
The winning artist will be announced on Friday, April 11 and the final artwork will be made public in early June.
