The Holland Farmers Market is pleased to announce plans for its first ever Poster Design Contest! Both amateur and professional artists and designers ages 16 and up are invited to submit designs for the contest by Friday, April 14 for a chance at winning a $500 cash prize. The winning design will be printed on posters used to promote the 2023 Market season, along with merchandise like tote bags, magnets, and stickers that will be available for sale at the Market. The Holland Farmers Market Poster Design Contest is proudly sponsored Fris Supply Shop in Downtown Holland.
“On behalf of our entire team at Fris Supply Shop, we’re excited to be able to sponsor the Holland Farmers Market’s first ever Poster Design Contest,” said Fris Supply Shop owner Andrew Fris. “It’s a great way to get the art community involved and a fun way to be able to promote the Holland Farmers Market.”
Artwork submissions will be accepted online through midnight on Friday, April 14. Artwork should reflect the mission of the Holland Farmers Market, which is to connect the surrounding community with high-quality local food while supporting the livelihoods of our farmers and vendors. The Market also aims to educate the community on the local food system, while making healthy food accessible for all in a welcoming atmosphere.
Artists may submit up to three designs for the non-refundable $10 entry fee. Specific design requirements can be found on the online entry form found at www.hollandfarmersmarket.com.
