Kona Coffee Cultural Festival Calls for Art Entries
Kona Coffee Cultural Festival, Hawai‘i’s oldest food festival, has announced its Call for Art Entries for the official image of the 2017 Kona Coffee Cultural Festival.
Local artists are invited to submit original Kona coffee art in all art forms, including fine art, graphic design and photography.
Artwork should reflect the festival’s mission to preserve, perpetuate and promote Kona’s unique, nearly 200-year coffee heritage.
The winning design will become the official image of the 2017 Kona Coffee Cultural Festival and will be featured on all official festival merchandise, including the festival button, event poster and retail merchandise.
The winning design will also be featured on the festival’s magazine cover, website and other promotional materials.
Artists using traditional media—oil, acrylic, tempera, watercolor, illustrations—as well as computer graphics creators and photographers are invited to participate.
Typography should not be included within the art.
There is no entry fee to participate. The competition is open to all Hawai‘i Island residents 18 and older.
By submitting artwork into this contest, the winning artist agrees to assign all ownership rights and copyright of the art to the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival for the 2017 Festival.
Artwork submissions are due by Friday, April 14, 2017, and should be delivered to Malia Bolton at the Kona Coffee & Tea Company located at 74-5588 Palani Road. Entries can also be submitted electronically via email. Include “Festival Submission” in the subject line of emailed entries.
