Contests

We miss hosting you all at shows and parties β€” and we also really miss commissioning rad event posters every week. So since reality is curtailed just now, we’re going to spend October in our (and your) fantasies…

The proposition: Design a poster for the Holocene show/party/affair of your dreams. Go absolutely wild β€” it can literally be anything. It needs:

  1. A name or theme or tagline
  2. “Talent”
  3. Location (Holocene!)
  4. No date πŸ™
  5. So much Beauty!

Entries will be judged on: Design excellence (90%) and inspirational / inventive event concept (10%)

Prizes!:

First prize – $100 cash prize, $150 Holocene gift certificate, and 3 copies of your poster mounted on foam core

Second prize – $100 Holocene gift certificate, Holocene tee, and print copy of your poster mounted on foam core

Third prize – $50 Holocene gift certificate, Holocene tee, and print copy of your poster mounted on foam core

Submissions will be accepted through the entire month of October (deadline 10/31, 11:59pm). File requirement details below.

Winners will be announced November 6th. We’ll be sharing some of our favorite submissions on our socials, and we’ll post winners at the venue. And if you’re thinking this contest might be partly to scout new artists for design work once we’re back open β€” maybe kinda. πŸ˜‰

Send your design as a PDF via any file storage / file transfer service (Google Drive, WeTransfer, Box, etc) to contact@holocene.org with the dimensions 11w x 17h, 300 dpi, and less than 10mb file size. Email subject line: β€œPoster Contest.” Multiple entries per person are allowed and welcome.Β
