Call for Poster Design!
Bloomington Handmade Market is looking for a new artist to create our 2013 holiday craft show poster! BHM is an indie craft fair that showcases the best of modern handmade art + craft with vendors coming from all over the Midwest. This fall marks our 8th event, which will be held on Saturday, November 9th at the Bloomington Convention Center.
Visual artists and graphic designers are invited to submit their innovative and visually compelling artwork designed as an 11”x14” poster. The winning design serves as the central visual image of the show and will be used in promotional materials as well as official BHM merch.
The creator of the artwork selected as the official poster will receive a choosing of either a free booth this November at BHM or free $75 sponsorship level to help promote you and your work. (Check out our sponsors page to see what being a sponsor entails!) The winner will also receive BHM merch that features their design, as well as their logo and link on our website.
