Wine, food fair organizers seek artwork for poster
PROSSER - Organizers of the Prosser Wine and Food Fair are seeking artwork for their 2006 promotional posters.
This year will mark the 25th anniversary of the fair, and the planning committee hopes to incorporate the color silver into the poster, as well as on the wine glasses and decorations.
Artists submitting artwork for the poster are asked to include silver and wording that reflects the fair's 25th anniversary in their design.
The artist whose design is chosen for the posters will receive $400 for the rights to the artwork. The chosen artwork will be used for posters, brochures, programs and advertising. The artist will also be asked to sign posters, which will be offered for sale. The sale of posters, say committee members, helps with the printing costs.
The deadline to submit artwork is Feb. 15. All designs should be left at the Prosser Chamber of Commerce office (1230 Bennett Ave.). Additional information can be obtained by calling (509) 786-4545.
