Make a Poster, Win a Prize

The Oliver Community Arts Council welcomes your submission for poster artwork to advertise the Fall Art Show & Sale, October 2 -3 , 2010. The theme for the 2010 Fall Art Show & Sale is “Those Were the Days”. The poster image may be a photo, a painting, or other 2-D representation, but must be your own work, and presented in 8 x 10″ format in portrait layout. The image must represent the theme but not include any wording.

The deadline for poster submissions is April 1, 2010 at 4:00 p.m. The winner will be announced during Arts and Culture Week, April 18 – 24, and displayed at Handworks Gallery. The image will be used on posters, flyers, newspaper and other advertising, in the weeks leading up to the Fall Art Show & Sale.

The winner will receive a prize basket valued at $250, and will be honoured at the Fall Art Show & Sale reception on the evening of October 2, where the winning submission will be featured.

The Oliver Community Arts Council reserves the right to crop, or otherwise adjust your image for poster suitability and quality, and to use the winning image and the name of its artist in all its advertising for the 2010 Fall Art Show & Sale.
