Call to Artists! OIRF Poster Contest!

The Old Island Restoration Foundation is looking for an image to be used for the 2018-2019 59th Annual Key West Home Tours posters and advertising. Artists are invited to submit artwork that captures the OIRF mission which is to preserve the architectural and cultural heritage of Key West and to appeal to the people who go on our Home Tours.

Artwork can be any medium or size, but must be reproducible to an 11x 8.5 inch horizontal image. The winning artist will be awarded a prize of $200 and their image will appear on the poster and advertising for the upcoming season.

The winner will be announced at our 59th Annual Home Tour Kickoff Party at The Oldest House on November 15 and the winning artist will be signing posters at the reception. (View 58th Annual 2017 Kickoff Party here.) Artwork may be for sale at the opening and for a show until November 25. Sales will be directly to the artists. $20 to enter.
