Request for Artist Proposal:
The world-famous Oregon Country Fair has been a Northwest tradition for the last 50 years. Here is your opportunity to design the poster for our 51st anniversary in July 2020, and be part of this amazing event. The selected artist will be awarded $3,500 for finished artwork. The Oregon Country Fair poster will be offset printed. The poster design and/or design elements will also be used on t-shirts and other OCF commemorative items. It’s helpful if you have attended the Oregon Country Fair to have a deeper understand of our event, but not mandatory. You can see photographs and videos of past fairs at: oregoncountryfair.org (click on “About” and then “Media Gallery”). Browse our archive for examples of past posters.
Please submit 3-5 samples of your previous work or a link to your portfolio to be considered to design the 2020 poster. We will accept digital jpg, tiff or pdf format. You may submit files by e-mail, with 2020 Poster Artist clearly marked in the subject line to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submissions is November 1, 2018. The finalist will be notified within 2 weeks of the deadline by a member of the Poster Committee to begin working on the design process. A finalist will be asked to submit rough mock-ups of potential poster designs and ideas. If we don’t pursue using these sketches, the finalist will be compensated $100 for their efforts.
All submissions will receive a confirmation email upon receipt of your submission and an email when the final decision has been made.
