Design the Official Poster for Buffalo Infringement Festival 2017

For just a moment, sit back and think about all of the things that you love about Buffalo’s Infringement Festival. Now that you’ve gone through all of the years, all of the events, all of the artists, all of the insane creativity… all for free… maybe it’s got you thinking that there’s something that you can do in return?

Buffalo’s only artist-run festival – celebrating the freedom of expression through a real arts democracy.

If you are an artist, and you feel that the Infringement Festival has helped you to get to where you are right now, then please consider entering the 2017 poster contest. The poster is the official way that the festival speaks to the community. It portrays what Infringement is all about, and gets the community onboard with the ten day festival that features artists, dancers, poets and everything in-between. If you need a brush up on what makes the festival so great, just click on the slideshow below:

The 2017 Infringement Festival will take place from July 27 – August 5, 2017. Performers submissions will open Feb 1, 2017.

About the poster:

Infringement Festival organizers will be selecting one poster submission to represent all the music, dance, theater, film, art and literature being showcased in 2017. The poster design will also be used for t-shirts, postcards, advertisements and official festival documents, both on the web and IRL.

In addition to receiving credit on the festival website, tons of street cred and local Art Star status, the designer of the winning poster will also receive $200 in cold, hard cash.

All submissions to the poster contest should be no more than three colors, including black and white. Submissions should also include the wording “Buffalo Infringement Festival 2017”. The design must be high resolution: If pixel-based, 300dpi and printable at 11×17.

Please send design submission as a .psd, .ai or .jpeg file to by October 21st, 2016. Please include contact information with your submission.

Submissions remain the property of their designer, and the contest winner must grant the Festival an unlimited license to use their submission freely.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
