The North Carolina Seafood Festival is sending an open call to North Carolina Artists to become their 2019 Commemorative Poster Artist. Over the past 32 years, the annual NC Seafood Festival Commemorative Poster has become a highly-anticipated collector’s item that has been shipped throughout the world.
In addition to receiving a monetary compensation, the winning artist will be invited to exhibit at the 33rd Annual NC Seafood Festival in a complementary area and has the option of receiving additional profits from independent poster sales.
Artists interested in submitting artwork must be a North Carolina resident, and the artwork must be an original work that has never been presented for public viewing. Content for the image may include depictions the seafood industry, scenes of coastal North Carolina, or renditions of past NC Seafood Festivals.
Submitted paintings should be 22’ x 28’ and turned into the North Carolina Seafood Festival office (412 Evans Street, Suite D, Morehead City) the week of October 22-26, 2018 from 9:00 AM- 4:00 PM.
