2013 New York State Sheep and Wool Festival Results
The 2013 Festival Art Contest is to select the 2015 Festival's artwork.
We had so many entries, it was difficult to choose, so we had to bring in more opinions from Committee to go over the 10 finalists. We debated our design parameters that remain important for future artists to consider when designing for this competition. 1) Ability to read everything even if printed on small and large products (mugs, printed palm card, advertising, shirts). 2) Original and unique concept not reminiscent of other festival artwork in the world 3) Unisex appeal (tricky since most of our attendees are women) 4) Simple color scheme to accommodate color discharge screen printing process. Art is art none-the-less, and we appreciate all of your efforts and spirit of playing the game. You can't win unless you try. Finalists are encouraged to keep their designs on file and modify them if you'd like to resubmit them again for the 2016 contest.
Next Fest: October 21-22, 2023
