Call for Artists

Are you an Illustrator, Graphic Designer or Painter? We're looking for artists who would be interested in designing our Indie Market posters for July, October, November and December. This would be a trade only venture. What we need is a 300dpi, high resolution, pdf image that's fun, funky, quirky and reflects/represents the life of the Indie Market. The finished image and text will fit on a poster that's 12" x 18" (landscape or portrait) and a card that's 4.25" x 5.5". If you prefer to do art work only, we will gladly put the text in ourselves. What you'll get in return for your artwork is a free 10' x 10' booth at the Indie Market for the month you design the poster AND free advertising.

What do we mean by free advertising? Well... Of course, your name will be on the poster to let everyone know who created it. Every poster printed will be hung up and every card printed will be passed out all over Greensboro and the surrounding areas. A jpeg image will also be sent out to all of our vendors (30+), who in turn will place it on websites, Facebook, blogs and send it out in emails in order to advertise for that month's Market. There's no telling who will see your work and what kind of business it will bring you (hopefully lots). =)

We're all about supporting local artists and helping to get your work out to the public. If you'd like to take us up on our offer to design a poster, please contact Mandy and I at FirstFridayMarkets@gmail.com.
