Breck calls for entries for Oktoberfest artwork

DAILY NEWS STAFF REPORT

BRECKENRIDGE ” The Breckenridge Resort Chamber is again offering the public the opportunity to design the artwork for the 14th Annual Breckenridge Oktoberfest to be held Sept. 12-14.

Local artists have the opportunity to capture the feel of the Munich festival in Breckenridge.

The winning artwork will appear on the 2008 Breckenridge Oktoberfest poster, the half and 1-litre steins and in the print advertising and branding of the event.

Concept sketches are due no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 12.

Sketches must be no larger than 14″ x 17″ and both horizontal and vertical formats will be accepted. Artists are encouraged to tie-in the feel of the Bavarian celebration and the feel of Breckenridge to their concept.

From the submittals, the winner will be chosen by a select panel of judges. Due to the multiple uses of the artwork we ask that artists use a limited color palette so that it can be readily adapted to the steins and to vector art.

Artwork can be submitted to the BRC offices located at 311 S. Ridge St. in Breckenridge, or mailed to: Breckenridge Resort Chamber, Attn: Special Events, PO 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″ x 17″ by Wednesday, March 28.

The artist who submits the winning 2008 Oktoberfest art idea will receive a prize package including Oktoberfest schwag, steins and beer tickets from the Breckenridge Resort Chamber and his/her artwork displayed all over Breckenridge and beyond.

Past Oktoberfest artwork has included a variety of themes including fall leaves, the Breckenridge Ski Resort, Bavarian inspired landscapes, symbols and figures and of course, beer. Artists are encouraged to stop by the Breckenridge Resort Chamber to check out the Oktoberfest artwork from previous years.
