Creston Valley Bird Fest committee looking for poster artwork

Web Lead

The May 10 and 11, 2013, Creston Valley Bird Fest is only six months away. The festival committee is looking for a piece of art to purchase to become the festival poster with which to advertise this exciting new event for the Creston Valley. The committee has budgeted $400 for the festival art piece.

Interested artists are invited to submit a good quality photo stating the medium and dimensions of their art piece to Jim Jacobsen at the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce and before Dec. 31.

Artists are free to choose their medium. An identifiable bird theme is preferred. Go to www.crestonvalleybirds.ca, email info@crestonvalleybirds.com or call 1-866-528-4342 for more information.

The festival committee looks forward to making its juried selection for the festival poster in January 2013. The art piece will be auctioned on the final night of the bird festival to provide seed money for next year’s festival.
