Puget Sound Bird Fest Poster Art Contest

Puget Sound Area Artists are invited to submit original artwork representative of Puget Sound birdlife to be used on the 2017 Puget Sound Bird Fest poster for promotion of the event taking place September 15-17 in Edmonds. The poster format is 11” X 17”, portrait orientation, so a vertical art orientation usually works best. A $200 prize, sponsored by Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation, will be awarded to the winner. The winner may display and offer for sale the framed original and prints during Puget Sound Bird Fest.
