Deadline nears for Sunshine Festival artwork

SEQUIM — The Aug. 1 deadline is approaching for applications from artists to be considered to develop artwork for the 2023 Sequim Sunshine Festival poster and promotional materials.

The selected artist will be commissioned by the City of Sequim to develop an agreed upon concept and final piece of art to be used for promotional materials and merchandise to market and support the festival.

The selected artist will enter into a contract with the city, receive $500 in compensation upon completion of the final artwork, and have a table or booth at the 2023 Sequim Sunshine Festival marketplace. The City of Sequim will own the final artwork.

To apply, artists will need to submit an application and three digital samples of their existing work. Deadline for submissions is 4 p.m. Aug. 1.

Only digital applications will be considered. To apply, go to https://form.jotform.com/221794280228054.

All entries will be juried by a subcommittee of the Sequim Sunshine Festival planning committee by Aug. 8. Artists will be notified of their status by Aug. 10.

The first Sequim Sunshine Festival was held in March 2020 to help shake the winter blues and celebrate the approaching spring and summer seasons, organizers said. Highlights of the festival included the Sun Fun Color Run, Interactive Light Experience, and illuminated drone show. A modified version of the festival was held in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions. A full festival was held in 2022 and is being planned again for 2023. There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available.
