Request for Expressions of Interest – The Summerfolk Music & Crafts Festival is seeking an artist to create the artwork for our 2016 festival branding. This is a paid position to create artwork for our 2016 poster and to be adapted by our designers for all marketing channels, including website, merchandise, and print.

Please visit www.summerfolk.org for more information about Summerfolk and its history.

Who can submit: 

Illustrators, painters, graphic artists, printmakers, photo artists/manipulators.  We want something original.

(Please, no conventional photography submissions; we aren’t planning a photo-based poster for 2016.)

Ways to submit:

  1. Email to: generalmanager@summerfolk.org
  2. Or you can mail/drop-off your submission to the Georgian Bay Folk Society. We will not return submissions—please provide a SASE (self-addressed, stamped envelope), if you would like your work mailed back to you. (Folk Society’s office hours are 10am-5pm, Monday to Friday.)

What to submit:
