REVISED DEADLINE: January 25. Each year we offer uniquely designed merchandise, posters and tshirts, to commemorate HousingFest. A grant from the Reemprise Foundation is allowing us to open our design search to local artists for HousingFest 2019! We invite you to send us YOUR vision for an image that captures the spirit of Charlotte’s community gathering together in celebration of music and arts to end homelessness.
We value the time, talent, and dedication required by all art forms. Consequently, we are inviting designers to offer CONCEPT-based submissions, so that we can identify one artist whose work we will commission for the creation of our 2019 festival merchandise. It’s as easy as sending in a short paragraph or a sketch, along with examples of previous work. Submissions are accepted until January 25. Guidelines can be found here: HF19 Merchandise Design Competition. Questions and more information from Katie Church: firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-926-0623.
