Downtown Akron Partnership (DAP) is seeking local artists to create a design for the First Night Akron 2017 admission button and poster.
In past years, previous button artists nominated peers to submit proposals, but due to feedback from many past artists, an open RFP was suggested in hopes to engage the area’s artistic community.
The artwork should be visually active and represent the spirit of First Night Akron. Designs that include logos, copyrighted or trademarked images, advertisements, or political, commercial, religious, or sexual symbols, themes or messages will not be considered. Designs should be appropriate for a diverse, broad-based audience of all ages.
Interested artists can visit downtownakron.com/firstnight to view the full RFP and complete the online application. The application deadline is Aug. 15.
