Poster Contest Open to All Artists

ArtFest Fort Myers, Southwest Florida’s premier fine art festival, is pleased to announce an all new Poster/T-shirt Competition for the 2014 festival.  “This competition is open to all professional artists,” explains Sharon McAllister, Executive Director.  “Our Commemorative Poster and T-Shirt always feature inspiring original artwork and we encourage any artist, not just those applying to participate in ArtFest Fort Myers 2014, to submit their artwork for Poster/T-shirt consideration.

The artist whose work is selected for the Poster/T-shirt will be featured in a broad range of print, on line and VIP promotions preceding festival weekend, and continuing throughout the year, as well as a free booth space at ArtFest Fort Myers 2014, a complimentary three night stay at our host hotel, plus an invitation to join us at ArtFest Fort Myers 2015 and much more!

“It has been a great honor to have participated twice as the Poster Artist for ArtFest Fort Myers,” said Tim Parker. “This was a tremendous opportunity to gain a significantly wider audience. The related advertising and promotion of my artwork provided priceless exposure and my great sales certainly were a reflection of the media attention.”

Submissions for this contest must represent original artwork, in a theme that denotes Southwest Florida and is appealing to a broad audience. Entries will be accepted from May 15, 2013 through August 20, 2013 and images can be submitted by email.  For more information, visit our web site and click on Poster Contest or call 239-768-3602

Proceeds from the sales of the Commemorative Poster and T-Shirt help to support the ArtFest Fort Myers’ art education outreach programs – The After School Art Clubs, the Boys and Girls Art Club at Shady Oaks, The Visiting Artist Program and Art Supply Grants.
