2023 Poster & T-Shirt Contest

 Every year Summer Solstice has a poster and t-shirt contest once the theme is set. The Artists in the community submit their finished works to illustrate the theme. The winner’s image appears on posters,teeshirts, and there is an honorarium for the artist who is selected. 

 

The collection of artwork for the Poster and T-shirt art contest will take place on Friday February 17, at the Solstice Office, 924 Anacapa Street, Suite 3-h (third floor) from 10:00 am to 5:00 PM.  Artwork must be ready to hang, with the title of the artwork, your name, address, email and phone number on the back,if you wish to offer it for sale and at what price.

Solstice can provide the wording for the poster, so you are free to express your vision for the poster and t-shirt. You can design it as you like, keeping in mind the theme, poster formats (18 x 24 "portrait" 24 x 18 "landscape") what it might look like on a t-shirt, and all the wonder, whimsy and fun of Solstice and what that means to you and our community.
