The winner will win $500 in cash, plus $500 in gift certificates to local businesses. Artwork must be the creator's own, must not have been published elsewhere, and should relate to the issue's theme, which is "Revolution." The concept can be interpreted however you see fit - whether it's defined as something new, ground-breaking, game-changing, subversive, outspoken, politically active, unapologetic, provocative, or irreverent. Bonus points if the design incorporates elements of life in the East Bay.
Submissions are welcome from all ages and skill levels, from any geographic location, but must meet our requirements to be considered. The winning design, chosen by Express staff, will be featured on the cover of the Best of the East Bay 2012 issue, which comes out July 18, 2012.More info and Submission Guidelines
