Professionals, beginners, hobbyists and everyone in between are encouraged to submit their designs for this year’s competition which celebrates the diverse and inclusive nature of the Adelaide Fringe, which has been the biggest festival in the world for the past two years.

The design should encapsulate the many unique and rewarding experiences Adelaide Fringe has to offer, on a scale like no other festival in Australia, and it should showcase why Fringe is THE only place to be in February and March.

Entry for the poster design competition is free and open to everyone. The winning design will become the face of the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest arts festival for 2022.

Adelaide Fringe Director and CEO Heather Croall encourages everyone to enter. “We are looking for a poster that captures the huge life affirming force of the Adelaide Fringe,” said Ms Croall.

“Adelaide Fringe is a huge explosion of creativity for all to experience; Fringe transforms the city into a magic arts and festival landscape.”

“Fringe fills us with joy and invites everyone to participate in uplifting and unforgettable experiences that transport us to new realms. We would love to see entries from far and wide for this year’s poster,” said Ms Croall.

The winner will receive $3000 in prize money, free registration for an exhibition at Adelaide Fringe and the enormous exposure of becoming the symbol of Fringe 2022.

Previous Adelaide Fringe poster competition winners include freelance digital illustrator Polina Tsymbal, multi-disciplinary artist Dave Court and 2021 Archibald shortlisted artist Matthew Clarke.

Entries are now open and close Sunday 8 August at 11:59pm. The 2022 Adelaide Fringe Festival runs from 18 February to 20 March. For more information and how to enter, visit: for details.
