Jazz Fest committee seeks art entries for poster, T-shirt contestcommunities
The Alexander City Jazz Fest Committee is calling all artists.
“We’re now accepting original art for the annual Jazz Fest contest,” said Kim Dunn, Alexander City Chamber of Commerce membership services director and events coordinator. “Anyone can participate – there are no special qualifications to submit art. (The contest is) open to anybody – you don’t have to be a Lake Martin area resident.”
Dunn said the chosen art will be used on the commemorative poster and T-shirt for Jazz Fest, and the chosen artist will receive $250, a table at the Friday night event of Jazz Fest and VIP parking.
She said entries must include “23rd Annual,” “Alexander City Jazz Fest” and “June 7-8, 2013” and may use up to four colors, including black.
Fine art and digital art will be accepted, and there is no fee for entry. An artist can submit up to three entries. Artist name and phone number must be printed on the back of artwork, Dunn said.
“Jazz Fest is huge for our community,” Dunn said. “It brings in a lot of tourism and is a great way for residents to get out and just enjoy the community. The art contest is a fun way for the community to get involved in Jazz Fest.”
Dunn said all entries will become the property of Alexander City Jazz Fest, and the committee will accept entries until 4 p.m. April 1.
“We encourage everybody who’s interested to submit art,” Dunn said. “We encourage all ages to get involved.”
