This is the first time an open call for artwork is being offered to the public for this event, giving local artists the opportunity to capture the feel of the Munich festival in Breckenridge. The winning artwork will appear on the 2006 poster, steins and in print advertising. Concept sketches are due no later than Thursday, April 6 at 5 p.m. Sketches must be no larger than 14 inches by 17 inches, and artists are asked to tie in the feel of the Bavarian celebration and the feel of Breckenridge to their concept. From the submittals, the poster winner will be chosen by a select panel of judges. Due to the multiple uses of the artwork we ask that artists use spot color so that it can be readily adapted to the steins and to vector art. Artwork can be turned in to the Breckenridge Resort Chamber offices located at 311 S. Ridge St. in Breckenridge, or mailed to: Breckenridge Resort Chamber, Attn: Special Events at P.O. Box 1909, Breckenridge CO 80424.Once the winning artwork is selected, the winner will be required to submit final art at a poster size of 14 inches by 17 inches by Wednesday, April 17, 2006.
