Next year is going to be very special for us as we celebrate our 40th Fringe!
Following the success of last year's art competition to design the programme cover, we have launched another open-to-all contest so don't be shy - we welcome entries from anyone who can dream up a good design whether that's based on photography, collage, a painting or anything else that might make a good cover. All ages are welcome - you certainly don't need to be a professional artist!
There is a £100 prize for the winner and the work of runners up will also be featured on the website. The choice of subject matter is completely yours but it would be great to see some entries celebrating Fringe40 - the first Fringe was in 1980.
The Fringe has a reputation for spectacular covers with 2018’s programme using a vibrant design from artist Joanna Allen of New Mills, winner of last year’s Fringe competition.
Full details are available on www.buxtonfringe.org.uk//artcompetition2019.html. Fringe chair Keith Savage adds: “2019 is going to be a big year for Buxton and the eyes of the world will be on us! Everyone that does anything to promote the town will be looking to be at their best and the Fringe is no exception. We look forward to showcasing some exciting original art.”
Please help us spread the word - the deadline is NOVEMBER 1st with entries submitted by email. We can't wait to see what you come up with!
