Indiana Peony Festival T-Shirt & Poster Design Contest

Indiana Peony Festival T-Shirt & Poster Design Contest

This year the Indiana Peony Festival is looking to involve artists throughout the state to help the organization design its annual T-shirt and & poster graphic (1 graphic that will be utilized for both). IPF would like the design to embody a band tee/festival vibe and include something iconic from Historic Seminary Park where the festival is held each year, such as the gazebo or “Seminary Park” iron gates. Please create a design that feels versatile and unisex so that men, women & children of all ages would enjoy wearing the shirt or purchasing the poster.  

Summary of submission requirements:  

  • Would like to feel festival / band tee inspired 
  • Must include some piece of Historic Seminary Park 
  • Should feel unisex 
  • Please note our logo will be incorporated somewhere on the t-shirt & poster, but does not need to be in the actual graphic itself 
  • If you’d like to incorporate text, event info is as follows: Indiana Peony Festival, May 20, 2023, Seminary Park, Noblesville, IN 
  • Max number of colors (for tshirt printing purposes) is 8
  • Final file must be digital so that we can send to print for tshirt & poster
