The Maine Lobster Festival is seeking an artist to create the 2023 festival poster. Every year, thousands of these posters are hung all over Maine and beyond to promote the festival, and to be sold as keepsakes. The festival is looking for just the right creative talent to make the 2023 poster.

The winner will receive a $1,000 commission and must release the rights of the artwork to the Maine Lobster Festival. Artists are asked to submit samples of their work and a bio. A requirement for the poster is a large lobster, so it is helpful for the committee to see a sample lobster. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Dec. 30, 2022. Submissions will be accepted online on the festival’s website. The winning artist will be chosen by a committee.
