The Maine Lobster Festival is looking for an artist to create the 2020 festival poster. Every year, thousands of these posters are hung all over Maine and beyond to promote the Festival, and to be sold as art keepsakes. The festival is looking for just the right creative talent to make the Festival’s 2020 poster.

The winner will receive a $1,000 commission and must release the rights of the artwork to the Maine Lobster Festival. Artists are asked to submit samples of their work and a bio to Jim Brickel at [email protected]. A requirement for the poster is a large lobster, so it is helpful for the committee to see a sample lobster. The deadline to submit samples is Nov. 1, 2019. The wining artist will be chosen by a committee.
