Design The Richmond Maritime Festival Poster And Enter To Win $500

Richmond Maritime Festival 2015

Richmond-based visual artists and graphic designers again have a chance to create this year’s signature artwork for the annual Richmond Maritime Festival.

The winning artwork will become the poster image for the 12th annual Richmond Maritime festival, one of city’s most popular summertime festivals, which takes place at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site on August 8 and 9.

The poster image, to convey Steveston’s maritime heritage, will be seen throughout Metro Vancouver in print and online advertising, brochures, transit shelter advertising, site decor and other promotional materials over the summer. The selected artist will receive a $500 honorarium.

In April, the winning artist will be announced and the final artwork will be made public in early June.

Last year, local art student Hazel Cheng created a memorable artwork capturing the fun, maritime  theme of the festival and the natural and historic beauty of its historic site.

Artists who wish to be considered for this project are invited to submit a portfolio of up to five work samples (in electronic format). The deadline to submit is Tuesday, March 31, 2015.

Submission instruction details can be found at www.richmondmaritimefestival.ca.
