Call for Entries: 2020 Kentucky Derby Festival Official Poster Art

  • We're looking for next year's Kentucky Derby Festival Official Poster Artist, to represent the Louisville Community and the state's largest annual Festival! This is an all-media call for works that are inspired by the 70+ events of the Derby Festival (BalloonFest, Steamboat Race, Pegasus Parade, etc.) and how they bring together the local community. Works may depict thematic or historical elements of the festival, or may approach the Festival's purpose more directly by showcasing event highlights. The chosen artist will be compensated monetarily. This project will also be an opportunity for artists to display their talents, with the opportunity for media appearances & poster-signing opportunities. DEADLINE NOW EXTENDED to July 31, 2019.

    This does not have to be a fully-realized work, though the artist should have a strong sense of the final direction of the design. Artist will work with Derby Festival to develop the final piece.
  • Please share your vision, inspiration and technical aspects (medium, technique, size & dimensions, etc.) of this piece.
