Annual Garlic Festival Poster Contest

Poster Contest

Prospectus 2014

The judging of entries for the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival tm Poster Contest will be in two phases.

Phase 1: Call for Portfolios – Deadline, August 5th, 2013

Artist will create and submit a poster design to the Kiwanis Club of Saugerties, Hudson Valley Garlic Festival tm Committee. Artist will create and submit only one poster design. Actual poster size is 13” x 17”, entries should be roughly proportional to that size. A self addressed, stamped envelope must be provided if the artist wants the work returned.

The Kiwanis Club of Saugerties, Hudson Valley Garlic Festival tm Committee will then review portfolios and select three finalists. The committee will be looking for creativity, originality and style that would work well on posters, tee shirts and printed materials. Samples of previous year’s posters can be seen on our web site:

Phase 2: Selection of Three Finalists – Deadline, September 3rd, 2013

The three finalists chosen by the HVGF Committee will be notified by September 1st, 2012. The poster designs will be displayed at this year’s festival, September 24th and 25th, 20011 at the information/press tent. The public will vote for their favorite.
