Buxton Fringe announces art contest!
With this year’s event (July 5-23) just around the corner, Buxton Fringe is already thinking about 2018 and has announced an open-to-all art competition for next year’s programme cover.
The Fringe has had some terrific artwork featured on its programme covers including this year’s photograph from designer Tom Mason featuring tiny model figures against a vintage map background. Past covers have also been provided by art students from Fringe sponsor, the University of Derby.
Now organisers are looking to widen the net with a competition aimed at professional and non-professional artists alike and open to all. The closing deadline for submissions, which must be emailed, is October 1st and there will be a £100 prize for the winning entry.
Full details are available on www.buxtonfringe.org.uk. Fringe chair Keith Savage adds: “It's a few years since we have had an open competition for the Fringe artwork. Given the number of talented and imaginative artists and designers out there I look forward to having some difficult decisions to make.”
