Rubbout 25 Poster Contest


We are looking for artists with a bit of a bend to conjure up some imagery for Rubbout’s 25th anniversary in 2016! We are looking for submissions by the end of March so they can be shown during Rubbout 24 for a vote on the most popular. Expect the winner’s artwork to be prominantly displayed until Rubbout 25: Silver April 1-3, 2016!

We would like to present the designs/art to the attendees of Rubbout 24 on Easter Weekend to determine a winner!

PSD format strongly encouraged. I think this is what we need for Rubbout 25: Silver:

A Photoshop vector graphics cmyk .psd file that renders to:

48″x72″ x 300ppi minimum for our main event banner.

We typically render these poster dimensions
12″ x 18″ with bleed 400ppi TIFF files
18″ x 24″ with bleed 400ppi TIFF files

and various other web banners, other renderings from the .psd file layers in various dimensions and orientations in .jpg, .tiff, .pdf and .png files.

Other renderings are utilized in Illustrator to generate a weekend program.

Sticking to Photoshop should be good since it’s a suite that we have copies of to manipulate the main .psd files later.

Callout for Volunteers

Well men it’s that time of year again…an official call for volunteers. If you are interested in helping out we need to know when you’re available and what you’d like to do.
