Help Us Tell the World Art is Essential
Critical Read is happy to announce our 2020 Tote Bag Design Contest.
In March of this year we began our Art Is Essential campaign with a flash essay series. We now invite visual artists to join the campaign and show the world that Art Is Essential.
We’re asking them to create an original work of art that includes the phrase “Art Is Essential” in a visibly legible manner. Designs can be sent to [email protected] or through the web page at https://criticalread.submittable.com/submit.
We will collect design submissions from May 26, 2020 through August 26, 2020. The first-prize winner will be awarded $650 and will have their design used on a limited-edition tote bag. A portion of the sales proceeds will go to groups that support both artists and arts organizations that are suffering hardships because of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Three runners up will each receive $25 each and a subscription to Critical Read.
For any submission, the final format must be a 14W x 11H image scanned as a high-res jpeg or psd file at 300 dpi. For example, you can draw an image and scan it. No vector files will be accepted. No more than one design can be submitted per applicant. The winning design will be printed on a white tote bag using a heat transfer method.
