Dreaming of Front Cover Fame? Adelaide’s Feast Festival is shouting out to all artists, photographers, illustrators, designers and all creatives to enter a design that could become the front cover of the 2023 Feast Festival Program Guide.
Feast Festival is re-introducing the Front Cover Commission for 2023 and are seeking sketches or an outline of your concept along with a sample of your past creative work. You must supply a brief written synopsis that explains your concept and symbolism. The selected applicant will receive $1,000 to create the artwork.
Feast is entering a new phase under new leadership and they want to visually capture this turning point in history. Think of the following words as inspirational themes: Nostalgia, Phoenix Rising, Turning a page, Next chapter, Revival and Renewal.
Your creation will become the cover art, plus be used across social media and in other printed formats including merchandise. The winning applicant will be invited to the VIP Program Launch where the cover design will be released.
Applications are due Friday 2 June. The successful applicant will work with Feast to refine their concept and idea, with a ‘draft’ to be supplied to Feast by 14 June. The Final artwork will need to be supplied to Feast by 30 June 2023.
Payment will be made to the successful applicant within 7 days of receipt of invoice after the creation of the work. This fee includes the artist fee, materials and production. Ownership of the artwork will be transferred to Feast Festival, with credit listed to the successful applicant. Selection of artist and future use of the artwork will be at the discretion of Feast Festival.
