Union Fair Poster Contest call
Union — The Union Fair Board of Trustees has announced the poster contest for the 2014 Union Fair — Wild Blueberry Festival. Entries should reflect one or more of the themes of this traditional agricultural fair including, but not exclusive to, blueberries, agriculture, fairs/carnivals, farm animals, 4-H, crafts, harness racing, etc.
A single theme will probably serve the purpose of clarity. Art work should be poster size, approximately 14-by-20 inches. The complete rules and application can be downloaded from unionfair.org or may be obtained via email from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Final date for submission of entries is March 1; the winner will be announced in April and will receive a prize of $500. The winning poster will become the property of the Union Fair and will be used for publicity purposes. It is hoped the winning artist will be available one or more days during fair week, Aug. 16 through 23, to be recognized, sign posters, etc.
All entries should be mailed to Union Fair — Matthews Museum, P.O. Box 482, Union, ME 04862; or dropped off at Union Agway, Heald Highway/Route 17 in Union no later than March 1.
