Calling all Triangle Area Artists

We’re looking for a Triangle-based artist to create an original poster design for the 2022 Festifall Arts Markets – a series of three arts-focused block parties on Saturdays in October in downtown Chapel Hill.

Designs should celebrate the season, speak to the downtown Chapel Hill location, and include aesthetics of the Festifall experience — a funky, artisan, homegrown community gathering.

The selected artist will be awarded $500 to create a final design based on the submitted concept sketch and stakeholder input.   


  • The final design will be printed as 11” wide x 17” tall posters that will be used to promote the events.  
  • Elements of the design may also be repurposed by CA&C staff for promotional materials. The final design should be able to be scaled for social media, digital ads, signage, and more.  
  • The selected artist must have the ability to deliver the final design as .AI or .EPS files.
  • Posters will need to include the event name, dates, time, location, and relevant information. Specifics will be communicated by CA&C  staff when design work begins. 
  • Up to three rounds of edits may be needed during the design process. CA&C staff will provide feedback to designs within 48 hours once submitted.  
  • The final design is due no later than September 6. 

AWARD: $500 

DEADLINE: 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 27
ELIGIBILITY: Artists must live within 40 miles of Chapel Hill and submit application materials using the directions below.

Community Arts & Culture aims to inspire creativity and celebrate community for a better Chapel Hill.  We value inclusion, experience, and understanding, and encourage submissions of work to reflect these values.


The Town of Chapel Hill reserves the right to refuse any or all submissions or works, to refuse any finalist, and to waive informalities in procedures should it be determined that submissions or works are not adequate, or for any other reason prior to a written arrangement being reached.
