Design Contest: AJ Castillo at Marfa Lights!
Calling all poster designers! On August 31, 2013 Tejano recording artist AJ Castillo is bringing his fresh accordion jams to Far West Texas as part of the 27th annual Marfa Lights Festival, and we need your help in getting the word out.
Castillo is one of the brightest lights on the Tejano music scene, and not just because of his sparkling custom accordions. He'll be playing at Vizcaino Park, and we're looking for a poster that does his blistering-hot show justice.
This contest is open to all artists, designers and printmakers 18 and under. Contestants have free reign in coming up with a design. The only requirement is that submissions contain the following information:
Ballroom Marfa and the Marfa Chamber of Commerce present

The rest is up to you! If you're looking for inspiration, you can browse through the gallery of Ballroom Marfa posters on our website.
The contest will be judged by a panel of professional graphic designers including Brice Beasley (Austin, TX), Grace Davis (Marfa, TX), Stephen Escarzaga (Proper Printshop, El Paso, TX) and Paul Fucik (Arts and Recreation, Austin, TX).
The winner will receive a cash prize, in addition to having her or his work screen-printed and plastered across the Big Bend region as we spread the news about this blockbuster performance. And, of course, he or she will receive a pair of tickets to see AJ Castillo at Vizcaino Park.
Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off in-person at the gallery at 108 E. San Antonio St. in Marfa. You can also call with questions at 432-729-3600.
