All Day



Deadline: Saturday March 17 2018 at 5pm EST

Rails End Gallery and Arts Centre, a non-profit organization, invites artists to participate in our FIRST Haliburton DrumFest art contest. Haliburton DrumFest is a free, family-friendly festival in its third year that was created to bring the community together to celebrate rhythm and honour cultural diversity through drums and percussion!
Haliburton DrumFest 2018 is looking for an image for this year’s posters and marketing materials. We are reaching out to artists in the community to help us out!  This artist call is open to all ages so we encourage students and established artists alike to submit their work!
Why should I enter this contest? Sweet perks of course! The winner of this contest, chosen by the Haliburton DrumFest Organizing Committee, will receive an interview in the local press, a 2018 Rails End Gallery Artist Membership and a complimentary vendor pass to sell (and display) their work at Haliburton DrumFest 2018. This is a great opportunity for emerging artists in the community to get their name, face and artwork out there!
Not sure where to start? To view previous year’s poster image (by Yves Ameline) and marketing materials please visit Rails End Gallery and Arts Centre during regular hours Wed – Sat 11 – 5 pm.
