Limerick Schools Poster Competition for Limerick Fringe 2018

Limerick Schools Poster Competition for Limerick Fringe 2018

Limerick Fringe announced yesterday their first Limerick Schools Poster Competition for students of Limerick. The Limerick Fringe 2018 festival will award one talented artist the honour to have their artwork printed on the cover of the 10,000 programmes as well as the Fringe festival posters. The competition is open to all Primary and Secondary students in Limerick City & County.

Limerick Fringe Festival is a not for profit organisation that looks to support artists and producers to promote new, vibrant and daring arts to a wider audience utilizing non-traditional spaces. The Limerick Schools Poster Competition is their newest way of involving the younger generation in what they do.

“The winner of the Limerick Schools Poster Competition will have their work selected to be on the cover of our 2018 festival programme, our festival posters as well as in our online gallery,“ said Simon Thompson, Limerick Fringe Chair.


“We will also display the top 10 designs on our website and social media. We decided to reach out to schools to encourage budding artists to inspire the 2018 Limerick Fringe festival. We will also award the winner with a hamper of arts & craft supplies from local art store Silkes, along with a hamper for the winning school. The winner will also receive a family ticket to a Family Fringe show in April 2018.”

The poster design should convey the theme of Limerick Fringe as a multidisciplinary festival such Cabaret, Comedy, Dance, Family Fringe, Spoken Word, Music, Theatre, and Street Performance and should have no large words in the design.

The competition closes Friday, November 10 and winners will be notified by Thursday, November 30. To enter, schools contact [email protected] for more information.
