Design the official 2024 festival artwork!

Are you a passionate and creative local artist?

BorderLight Theatre Festival invites you to participate in our festival history by designing the official artwork for the 2024 festival.

Why You Should Apply:

BorderLight is a nonprofit theatre festival with a mission to present innovative theatre that inspires, builds cross-cultural understanding and celebrates the diversity of the human experience.

Join forces with us to create an iconic representation of the spirit and energy of our event. Your artwork will take center stage in our promotional materials, merchandise, and various festival platforms, showcasing your talent to a broad audience!

How to Apply:

Complete the submission form below with a link to your portfolio or examples of your previous work to showcase your artistic style and versatility. The submission deadline is March 15, 2024.

Our team will carefully review each submission, considering creativity, relevance to the festival's aesthetic (adventurous, experimental, unexpected, thought-provoking, playful), and the artist's unique perspective.  Based on the initial review three artists will be chosen and awarded $100 each to develop a rough concept of the 2024 festival artwork. Of the three submissions, one artist's concept will be awarded an additional $600 to be fully conceptualized.

Project Deliverables:

A high-quality vector file at 300 dpi with a vertical orientation, ensuring optimal resolution for printing and reproduction.
