Forget working on an all-consuming art project that only gets seen by the occasional house guest. Dream of going big on the streets of San Diego? Here’s your chance. The 3rd Annual North Park Festival of Arts Featured Artist Contest is back and collecting entries until February 14.
Each year, the festival searches for a new local talent to represent the San Diego art scene through their original, visual work. While all forms of art are welcome, they must be transferrable to a digital medium. Vibrant and eye-catching pieces are a must, as the selected winner will be spotlighted throughout the North Park Festival of Arts marketing campaign.
Just how much exposure are we talkin’? The art selected will be used in the marketing material of local publications both in print and online, social media and editorial features, as well as various media appearances. This “big break” will also feature the artist’s profile on the North Park Festival of Arts website and a link to the artist’s website. Applicants can enter now through February 14 at northparkfestivalofarts.com.
Looking ahead: The 2013 North Park Festival of Arts will take place on Saturday, May 18 at University & 30th Street and will celebrate local talent of all sorts, from dance to craft brews. Of course, the festival will also include plenty of food booths, live music and kids activities.
