Lemonade Days, Community-wide Commemorative Poster Contest - April 1st Deadline

The Dunwoody Preservation Trust would like YOU to design the first-ever commemorative Lemonade Days Poster to celebrate 2009 and our first year of Cityhood!

We're calling anyone in our community (and elsewhere!) to submit an original piece of art that may be selected for a limited-run poster to be sold at this years' Lemonade Days and given to our sponsors as special gifts. We expect that this poster will be the first of a series, and that the honor of being the author of the first poster will grow in significance over the years.

The idea is similar to what New Orleans has done with JazzFest (for examples of some of those posters, please follow this link,) but with a Dunwoody theme. You can choose to highlight special characteristics of our city, our landmarks, or even on the Lemonade theme. Your creativity is what they're after!

The details of the contest are highlighted in the poster linked here. In summary, they are seeking a FLAT, 14x14 piece of original art, submitted physically or electronically by April 1, 2009. They will judge the submissions, announce the winner and produce a limited run of posters shortly after that. The winning artist will receive three numbered copies of the poster, have your name printed on the poster, receive two full-run ride passes for the Lemonade Days carnival, a t-shirt, and as much publicity as we can give you. Sales of the poster will benefit the mission of the Dunwoody Preservation Trust.

If you have questions you can contact the DPT at lemonadedays@gmail.com, or call Kathy Florence or Monica McGurk at the numbers printed on the poster.
