MSF Poster Competition

Open Call for Mid-South Fair Poster Competition and Guidelines


The Mid-South Fair is holding an open invitation for local artists to create a commemorative poster in honor of the annual event. Artists can submit digital versions of their original artwork in PDF format to The artistry should reflect the vibrance of the Mid-South Fair and commemorate its long history providing guests an outlet to produce and appreciate art, sing along with musical guests and enjoy family time with exciting rides and attractions.


The winning poster will be selected for its design qualities, relevancy to the brand and marketability. Moreover, the top poster will be displayed throughout the grounds and distributed to Fair partners and businesses throughout the area. It will be available for purchase at the Mid-South Fair’s art exhibition, as well. All proceeds benefit the Mid-South Fair; however, the chosen designer will take home a cash prize of $500.
