Downtown Akron Partnership (DAP) is seeking local artists
to create a design for the First Night Akron 2017 admission button and poster. Now, in its 22nd year, First Night
Akron is Akron's New Years Eve community celebration and features the regions best in music, dance, theater, interactive and visual arts from 6pm-midnight. The
artwork will be featured on the admission buttons (over 13,000 printed), the
poster will be framed and given to sponsors, and the design will be incorporated
into all marketing collateral for the event.
Create a color concept image for the button and the
poster. Submit your concept image using this form. We are interested in a
variety of media and techniques. Artwork should be visually active and
represent the spirit of First Night Akron. Designs that include logos,
copyrighted or trademarked images, advertisements, or political, commercial,
religious, or sexual symbols, themes or messages will not be considered.
Designs should be appropriate for a diverse, broad-based audience of all ages.
