The Silverton Arts Festival is holding its annual contest that will produce the poster for the event, which is set for Aug. 19-20 at Coolidge McClaine Park.

The contest is open to artists 16 and older, with the winner receiving either a 10′ x 10′ festival booth space, valued at $225, or $200 in cash, along with recognition in the festival program and other festival media.

No themes are assigned to the annual poster. Silverton Arts Association officials advise potential contestants that “your potential piece needs to be the marketing voice for the festival. It must appeal to the masses and appeal to people looking to purchase poster prints and other festival merchandise using your image.”

Artists should upload a high-quality color image of their artwork to www.silvertonarts.org– and fill out an application. The Silverton Arts Association will handle the poster graphic design once a winning art image has been selected.

Artists can submit multiple images but must submit an application for each one. The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 14.
