GREENVILLE — Each year the Danish Festival seeks an original poster to celebrate the current festival theme. This year’s theme is “The Snow Queen.”
Original designs in any medium are acceptable for the contest.
The artwork should represent the Hans Christian Andersen story of “The Snow Queen” in a creative but realistic interpretation. The artwork must not have been previously reproduced.
There is no limit on the number of entries but each entry must include the artist’s name, address and phone number on the back of each entry. The finished artworks should be on paper and no smaller than 12 inches by 16 inches.
The winning poster will be on display before, during and after the festival. In addition to being used in advertising the festival, the poster design will appear on shirts, iron-on appliqués and other promotional items.
Artwork should be hand delivered to the Danish Festival office on the second floor of the Huntington Bank Building before the deadline or mailed to P.O. Box 211, Greenville Mich., 48838. Winners will be notified by the Danish Festival office on approximately April 2. All decisions will be final.
The Danish Festival Committee will display the contest entries at the Huntington Bank Building from approximately April 2 through April 23. The winning poster will be revealed in conjunction with the unveiling of the 2012 Hans Christian Andersen Mural, location to be announced.
All entries (excluding winning entry) need to be picked up at the Danish Festival office by May 1. After that date the Danish Festival will not be responsible for storing the 2012 entries. Complete poster contest rules may be found on the Danish Festival website, www.danishfestival.org, or picked up at the Danish Festival office on the second floor of Huntington Bank in downtown Greenville.
Danish Festival office hours are Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons.
