Current Calls

MAC Fest Logo Art

SCAAC's upcoming art festival, MAC Fest, has a logo that needs to be filled with art! We would like to have as much variety in the logo as possible, so each event will have a different styled logo, but the font will be the through line (i.e. your particular logo may be used throughout the festival for a variety of events, but one design will not be selected for the whole event).

 

Submission Criteria:

  • Download the logo template here

  • Create art in all letters

  • Any medium is welcome

  • Include your signature in or alongside the letters

  • Please keep in mind that the MAC Fest logo font will be larger for banners and posters and smaller for merch and fliers

  • The logo that you complete may be used for an event/merch/poster/banner/social media/etc. 

  • Original art will be displayed in the MAC during the Stanwood-Camano Fair

  • Please submit a photo or scanned copy of the art to callsforart@scaacwa.org. We will then follow up with you to obtain the original for professional scanning and display.

  • By submitting a logo design you acknowledge that the art and graphics shall be the property of SCAAC and that SCAAC shall have the right to use the image(s) on SCAAC’s website, social media or promotional materials as needed to promote SCAAC & MAC Fest.

DEADLINE: 

July 7, 2024 - Submission Deadline
