Calling All Artists!
The 2016 Savannah Food & Wine Festival needs your creative juices!
Each year, the festival holds a contest for all artists over the age of 18 to submit their best work in the form of a poster design. The past three designs over the history of this contest have encompassed all things Savannah as a legendary location and included culinary and wine elements to help showcase the exquisiteness of the event.
The winner of the 2015 poster competition was former SCAD student Nuntanut Sathitytiwat. The design quickly became an identifier for the festival.
A panel of judges from the Savannah Food & Wine Festival will award one winner who created just the right mixture of the finest ingredients on this year’s poster. The festival adopts this design, and it is seen by thousands through the media, the SF&WF website, and marketing tools, such as tote bags, note cards, t-shirts, and more.
The winner of the poster competition will also be asked to attend Taste of Savannah for poster signings and will be awarded $500. This contest is an opportunity to include students of the community, local artists and aspiring artists in the week-long festival and display their talents throughout.
