It's almost festival time again. The Grand Avenue Members' Association and the Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts will team up for the 6th Annual Grand Avenue Festival on Saturday, November 8, held in the Grand Avenue District in downtown Phoenix.
The free, non-traditional, pedestrian-oriented festival celebrates the rich history of Grand Avenue, while encouraging neighborhood sustainability and community creativity.
A festival like this is needs creative imagery to boot, and organizers are now calling for artist submissions for a Grand Avenue 2014 official festival image. The artwork should represent the Historic Grand Avenue District.
All two-dimensional works, including photographs, will be considered. The winning artist will be awarded $150 and work with Grand Avenue's graphic designer to create a final image to be featured in festival posters, guides, and promotional material.
The deadline is Saturday, August 16, at midnight. Send your art submission as a JPEG to firstname.lastname@example.org.
