The city of West Hollywood is still searching for submissions from artists and graphic designers to help come up with the One City One Pride Festival Lead Image for 2019. The city’s Arts Division is inviting artists to submit poster design proposals for next year’s festival.
The poster design competition seeks original artwork that explores next year’s festival theme “Love is Love.” The theme was chosen because in these times, when there is so much hate and division in the world, the universal bond of love can unite us. The winning design will be the festival’s main booklet and poster image. The deadline for submission is Thursday, September 27, 2018. A prize of $600 will be awarded to the designer of the selected image.
The city is seeking booklet cover design submissions that can also be used on a variety of media. Most prominently the winning design will be used as the cover of a booklet measuring 4.25″ x 7″ (can be portrait or landscape orientation) of which several thousand copies will be printed and distributed widely.
Your design will also be adapted for street banners (measuring 35″ W by 72″ H) which will be seen by thousands as they drive through West Hollywood.
