Could you design next year’s Buxton Fringe programme cover?

PRESS RELEASE: For immediate release September 18th 2019

Following this summer’s successful Fringe40 celebration, organisers are already planning for next July’s eagerly anticipated 2020 Fringe and have announced an open-to-all art competition to create the programme cover.

The Fringe has a reputation for spectacular covers with the Fringe40 cover featuring an intricate lion design by Catherine Webb entitled Roar Talent.

As in previous years the contest is open to amateur and professional artists of all ages with the design to be featured on tens of thousands of Fringe programmes as well as being publicised on the Fringe website, the Fringe flyer, on badges, in advertising and in the press. There is a £100 prize for the winner! The work of runners up will also be featured on the website and potentially in other publicity materials.

The Fringe is leaving the choice of subject matter up to the entrants, the more imaginative the better. Full details are available on Acting Fringe chair Stephen Walker comments: “Fringe is all about creativity and new ideas, and in Buxton that starts from the beginning with our programme cover. We're excited to see what the talented artists in Buxton and beyond can come up with for our 2020 programme."

The closing date for the competition is November 1st 2019.
