Organizers of the 48thANNUAL BLUEMONT FAIR, to be held September 16 & 17, 2017 in historic Western Loudoun County, VA, invite artists of all ages and abilities to submit designs for consideration for this year’s logo. The theme this year is “Haying.” Hay has been grown, harvested, and used since the first farmers came to Bluemont in the early to mid-1700’s, and can still be seen in all of its forms—growing, cut and drying, and baled—in the fields around the village. The theme is deliberately broad so that artists can interpret freely. Some examples for designs could reflect the act of haying, hay fields, the animals who eat/use hay, hay bales, pitchforks and other hay-related tools, or anything else that touches on hay and haying. Multiple entries from individual artists are permitted. Chosen designs are often rendered simply, with minimal color, to facilitate replication on Bluemont Fair’s distinctive poster, t-shirt, and mug. Artists should include a brief biography, for inclusion in publicity, and their contact information. The selected artist’s name will be printed on the poster and his/her work acknowledged in the Fair brochure and publicity. Artwork should be mailed to: Bluemont Fair Logo/Poster Design Competition, P.O. Box 217, Bluemont, Virginia, 20135 and must be postmarked by April 22, 2017. Individuals requesting return of their submission should also include a self-addressed, stamped mailing receptacle. For further information, or to arrange for in-person delivery of an entry: 540-554-2367 (voice mail).
Wondering how you can become involved in this year’s fair? Find out easily by emailing us at email@example.com. Keep in mind that the Bluemont Citizens Association awards yearly scholarships to graduating Bluemont students who have volunteered in the community. A great way to get volunteer hours is to participate in the fair every year! (To qualify for a scholarship, the student must live in the 20135 zip code or have a 554 phone number.) The more hours the student has given to our community, the larger the scholarship will be.
Prospective vendors: new forms for the 2017 fair are under development, please check back and/or follow us on Facebook for updates.
Pet Reminder: We love ’em too — but, for the benefit of all who attend, we have to ask that pets stay at home. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
