We are seeking booklet cover design submissions that can also be used on a variety of media. Most prominently, your design will be used as the cover of a booklet measuring 4.25" x 7" (portrait orientation) of which several thousand copies will be printed and distributed widely.
Your design will also be adapted for street banners (measuring 35" W by 72" H) which will be seen by thousands as they drive through West Hollywood.
Submissions should be 4.25" W x 7" H. Ideal submissions will have a neutral background of a single color that is either dark or light so that readable text can be placed over it and be designed with a 1 inch bleed.
We request that posters be submitted both as a low-rez jpg and as a hi-res PSD or PDF file of at least 600 ppi.
All submission must incorporate the following or leave ample space for inclusion of the following:
1) These 2 logos: a) City of West Hollywood Logo, b) One City One Pride Logo
2) The following words:
The City of West Hollywood Presents
One City One Pride
40 Days of LGBTQ Arts
May 22 - June 30, 2020
In the spriit of inclusivity, if your submission features images (realistic or abstract) of people or parts of people (i.e., hands, faces, etc) your submission should either feature a diverse group of people both racially/ethnically and along the gender spectrum, or not be atributable to any specific gender or race. Of course, we welcome submissions which do not feature any people as well.
Your submission should not include any religious or commercial iconography or brands.
If you have additional questions you can contact One City One Pride coordinator Mike Che at email@example.com.
