THE SHOALS, Ala. – The WC Handy Music Festival at The Shoals will take place on July 23, but before that, a lucky artist will have the opportunity to design this year’s artwork.
If selected, the design will be used on t-shirts, posters and other festival memorabilia for advertising purposes.
All entries must be original copyright free creations and must not contain any clipart images. Final submissions must also be accompanied by a digital version.
“Seeing some of the artwork that has been submitted, I realize how lucky we are to have such a talent shared with the festival,” said Tori Bailey, chair of the WC Handy Music Festival. “We can’t wait to see what everyone has, and we can’t wait to choose the design that we think will best represent the return of the real WC Handy Music Festival.”
The deadline to submit a design is June 5 at 5 p.m. The winning design will be chosen on June 15.
Entries will be judged on merit, relevance as a visual image, originality and how the design reflects the spirit of the festival. The final decision will be made by the Board of Directors of the Music Preservation Society.
The winning designer will receive $ 500 for their art and will then become the property of the Music Preservation Society.
