Let's Go Make a Kite Fest Poster
Friday, January 17, 2014 - Friday, February 28, 2014
If you look to the skies of West Baton Rouge at the end of March, you shouldn't be surprised to see vibrant dots of color ascending to the clouds. Kite Fest Louisiane, Louisiana's only kite festival, offers nostalgic fun for all ages; and now you can get even more involved. In the first-ever poster contest, open to all, entrants are asked to submit works indicative of West Baton Rouge (suggested examples include flying kites, the Mississippi River Bridge, and pelicans.) Put your signature on this beloved annual event.
Technical requirements: All entries must be in color. 8.5x11 paper. Digital entries must be .pdf, .tiff, .jpeg, .eps, or .ai at 300 dpi. Must be hand-delivered to the West Baton Rouge Convention & Visitors Bureau, 2750 North Westport Drive. The winner will receive a $250 gift card from American Gateway Bank. Deadline is February 28. More information at (225) 344-2920 or facebook.com/wbrcvb.
