ArtsWorcester is holding a design competition for limited editions of die-cut stickers and tote bags to be sold at Worcester Wares. We seek an original design that involves one or more of these ideas, or your interpretation or combination of them:

The winning design will be:

/// original, and not a treatment of any existing logo or design

/// legible at different scales and distances,

/// full of positive energy, happy anticipation, and/or hope

/// enjoyable and appealing for all ages

One design will be selected and the artist will receive $250. Stickers and bags displaying the winning design will bear the artist’s name, signature, or Instagram, as desired. The competition and the winning designer will also be featured in regional press releases, and the designer will be the subject of an interview and feature article on ArtsWorcester’s publicity platforms. Two honorable mentions will receive $50.

ArtsWorcester membership or previous professional design experience is not required.

The items bearing the winning design will be available Thanksgiving 2021 through Valentine’s Day, 2022, or until supplies are gone.

Designs should be submitted as a .jpeg file by Friday, September 17, 2021. Designs should fit within either a 2:3 (or 3:2) or 1:1 (square) aspect ratio, but are not constrained by a specific shape.
