Kalamazoo Institute of Arts is Hosting Design Contest for 2010 Art Fair
Artists and graphic designers of all skill levels invited to enter!

Kalamazoo, Michigan - Monday, November 30, 2009. Calling all Michigan artists and graphic designers! The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts is hosting a contest for the 2010 Art Fair T-shirt and poster design!

Imagine $200 in your pocket and your artwork on everyone's chest! This scenario awaits if you win our competition to design the 2010 KIA Art Fair t-shirt and poster. The KIA invites submissions from all artists, discovered or undiscovered. Previous artists include Conrad Kaufman, designer of the 2009 Art Fair T-shirt and poster.

Held in beautiful Bronson Park on the first Saturday of June, the KIA Art Fair is the second-oldest continuously running art fair in the nation. What a great addition to your portfolio!

Images should be four-color, vertically oriented, and no larger than 8.5 by 11 inches. Images must include the words "KIA Art Fair" and the year 2010; optionally, they may mention the dates, June 4-5.

Submissions may be either original art or digital files (either jpeg or tif). Digital files should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and should be readable on either a Mac or a PC. There aren't any design parameters aside from the aforementioned, so let your artistic imagination soar, and enter for your chance to be part of Kalamazoo's history!

Designs will be accepted December 1, 2009 - February 1, 2010. The winner will be determined by KIA staff and volunteers.

Artists may submit their entry via email, or deliver a CD clearly marked with their name, contact information and the words 2010 Art Fair Design Contest to the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts front desk either in person, or via mail. If submitting via mail, please label the envelope 2010 Art Fair Design Contest.

For more information, please contact Sandy Linabury, Volunteer & Event Coordinator at (269) 349-7775 ext. 3114 or via email.
