Graphic design contest announced for 2017 Farmers' Market!
Calling all local Graphic Designers! We want YOU to design the 2017 Collingswood Farmers' Market Poster!
The start of the Collingswood Farmers' Market is a signal that spring has arrived in Collingswood! It's also one of the most anticipated dates on the Borough's community calendar with countdowns, planning, and a yearly marketing push to let the region know the Market is back!
The Market's promotional poster changes each year and is typically colorful, unique and represents the joy that the Collingswood Farmers' Market brings to thousands of shoppers and hundreds of vendors each year. For the 2017 season, Market organizers are looking for a local designer to create the "look" for this year's Market.
Borough officials are inviting local graphic designers to apply for consideration to create the 2017 poster. Based on applications and portfolios, three designers will be selected to create 2017 concept posters. Three finalists will all be paid $500 for their concept design. The public will choose their favorite poster through social media and online voting and the winning designer will be paid an additional $1000 for their work and to resize the concept for 2017 Farmers' Market advertising.
