Fantasy Fest 2011 “Aquatic Afrolic” is requesting artists to submit their vision of this year’s theme for the Annual Poster Design Contest! The winner will receive $1,000, a poster signing party and recognition as the winning artist or artist collaboration. This is your chance to join the revered ranks of artists whose creations have been seen by over 70,000 party revelers!
The artwork should reflect the theme and elements that are characteristic of Key West. Photography, cubism, graphic design, watercolors and cartoons have all been used over the past 32 years. Posters may be horizontal or vertical and a variety of sizes are accepted, generally art chosen is about 18” x 24”. Keep in mind that this needs the flash of a poster, but is also a piece of artwork purchased by festival attendees that will hang on the walls of their homes. Submission deadline is Wednesday, June 1, 2011. The artwork will be the sole property of Fantasy Fest upon selection and payment to the winner.
