ART: Council are calling on locals to come up with a poster for UneARTh 2019.

Whyalla’s 2019 uneARTh Festival is looking for artistic, identifiable and creative flair in Whyalla.

The uneARTh Festival is inviting creatives, artists and graphic designers, of all ages and experience from Whyalla, to submit their ideas for the 2019 Whyalla uneARTh Festival poster.

And we’re not after something for free … the producer of the design chosen to represent uneARTh 2019 will receive a $500 cash prize.

Yep, that’s $500 for creating a poster that says everything about the 2019 Whyalla uneARTh Festival and tells it in the very best creative way.

Over the last two years of uneARTh we have adopted the Fringe branding. We’re not going rogue, and we want to maintain our close ties to the Fringe, but we are also ready to adapt and develop a distinctive brand for Whyalla.

We’re looking for a design that aligns with our values – something that explores IDENTITY, our major theme for the 2019 festival. It needs to be unique to Whyalla but still has a link with the 2019 fringe poster, particularly the colours and energy of that artwork (see below)

This is a great opportunity to have your artwork on the cover of our program, posters and merchandise.

Entry is free and remember there is a $500 first prize. The competition is now open and entries must be submitted by 5pm on Monday, February 4.

Entries must be sent with a digital copy of your entry to unearthfestival@whyalla.sa.gov.au or mail your entry to uneARTh Festival Poster Competition, PO Box 126, Whyalla, SA 5600 or deliver in an envelope marked uneARTh Poster Competition to the Whyalla City Council front desk, Darling Terrace, Whyalla.

Your original design may incorporate a range of materials and mediums, but your final entry must be a two-dimensional representation of these ideas.

The winning entry must be able to be made into a layered Photoshop or InDesign version minimum resolution or a scalable vector/EPS file. Please keep this in mind when creating your submission.

Any questions can be directed to unearthfestival@whyalla.sa.gov.au
