Call for Entry! Commemorative Poster Challenge

Call For Entry: Do you have what it takes to create a commemorative poster? Now you have the opportunity to flex your artistic chops and design the commemorative poster for this year’s Fairfax Festival to be held on October 3rd at Kaw Point Park.

This year, FIA unveiled new monument signage concepts for the Fairfax District which included the B-25 bomber plane. This signage will be at the main entrances to the district. FIA chose the B-25 to be included as it’s an iconic image of our history and we hope people will question why a plane is on our signage and begin to learn the vast history and importance of our district. We would like a piece of the signage to be creatively incorporated into the poster this year.

The winner will receive $500 and the winning poster will be featured on this site, FIA emails and social media. Deadline for submissions is July 31, 2019.

To submit your artwork, click on the entry form tab below. There are also specs, information regarding the FIA and previous commemorative posters for your reference. You can also download the artwork by clicking the download icon in the window.

Are you ready? Let’s get started and good luck!
