Get Out the Vote Poster Show + Mix Tape Collaboration Call for Entries

AIGA Richmond is hosting its first Poster Show + Mixtape Collaboration! OPEN CALL – Deadline August 22

It’s simple. Design a poster based on your favorite song to help drive voter registration. The top 20 submissions will be printed, hung and sold at AIGA’s fall fundraising evening on September 2nd at 409 W Broad, next to Richmond Rides. The proceeds of sales go toward AIGA Richmond’s annual programming.

A playlist made from the artists’ submission songs will accompany the exhibit. This playlist will be as eclectic as our community—it's sure to inspire your creativity! We will even have a few judges help us decide on some fun “Best of” awards.

Deadline: August 22. No exceptions. Seriously. Not kidding.
