$400 Cash Stipend for two complementary designs

Every year we choose original designs from local artists for our downtown light pole banners. This year we are looking for two complementary (by color, style or theme) banner designs from the same artist. We have so many banners installed downtown that we are looking for variety. Please submit two designs, meant to be installed near each other. The artist that is chosen will receive a cash stipend of $400 ($200 per design). Banners will be installed in the spring next year. You will also have your signature printed on the banners and get free publicity when we submit press releases to the newspapers and feature your design on our website. Designs do not need to be print ready to be submitted. Artists are welcome to submit more than two designs.
