Back by popular demand: the Wine Country Ukulele Festival Poster Contest (http://winecountryukefest.com/contest-contest-contest/).

12244
We are, once again, looking for something colorful and classy that will convey all the fun and excitement that is coming our way this September.

This year’s prize (with many, many thanks to Rogie Cadiente and Sonny D Ukuleles) is a Sonny “D” Ohta-san Bell-shape concert ‘ukulele handmade in Hawai’i by Sonny Dahlin–’ukulele builder for the stars. The sound board is Alaskan yellow cedar with blond koa back and sides. It has an ebony fretboard with 14 exposed frets (19 total), a neck of African mahogany, and koa crown. The tuners are made by Schaller–silver with pearloid buttons. The rosette is olivewood and the bindings are maple. It is beautifully balanced and has fret markers on the top of the fretboard and down the side, so you can see them while you’re playing.

OK. So here are the specifications and “rules” for this year’s contest.


The printed poster size will be 11” X 17” so your artwork should fit within those dimensions
We’d like the poster to somehow incorporate our little tiki logo, though it does not have to be prominent. (See last year's poster) (http://winecountryukefest.com/contest-contest-contest/)
Text should include: “Third Annual,” “Wine Country ‘Ukulele Festival,” “September 11 – 12, 2010,” “St. Helena, CA”
Ideally there will be “blank” areas on the poster to add additional text (i.e. locations, artists names, sponsors, etc.)
Keep in mind that we may be looking for an element that we can imprint on the wine glasses we use at the Flora Springs luau on Saturday night. (Last year we used the tiki)
Deadline is midnight, May 21, 2010
Artwork should be submitted to winecountryukefest@yahoo.com (winecountryukefest@yahoo.comni) initially as a PDF or jpeg. The winning entry will need to be sent as a PhotoShop or Illustrator file.
You may submit as many entries as you like
Winner will be announced at www.winecountryukefest.com (http://www.winecountryukefest.com/) by May 30.
That’s it. Give it your best shot. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Sorry, for the inconvenience, but I need to add another rule. The poster also needs to include the web address for the festival: www.winecountryukefest.com. We'll still consider those entries that come in without it, but we will need to add it later. Thanks so much to those who have already submitted entries.

Good luck!

Is there a way to get the tiki logo digitally? That way I can incorporate it.

maybe next year let people on here help you with the voting process so that it won't take you so long past your date to decide.

and maybe change the "We’d like the poster to somehow incorporate our little tiki logo, though it does not have to be prominent. (See last year's poster)" part.

I meant to, but I never got an answer to my question... and then I forgot and moved on... sad day for forgetting.
