2017 San Diego Jewish Food Festival
Poster Design Contest – Cash Prize

  The 2013 Jewish Food Festival Poster
The 6th San Diego Jewish Food Festival will be held Sunday May 7th 2017. We are looking for a one-of-a-kind design to serve as Festival's graphic focal point for printed posters, cards and digital media for the Festival. All artists are invited to submit their original graphic designs for consideration. The winning design will be the identity centerpiece of the promotional campaign for the 2017 San Diego Jewish Food Festival. The design will be used as the official festival poster, and will also be the basis for media advertising that may include newspaper, magazine, social media, Festival program and more!

The artist creating the winning original poster selected by the 2017 JFF Art Committee will be awarded $100 for their design. In addition, the top three artists will receive JFF Family Fun Gift Packs to enjoy the entire day at the 6th Annual San Diego Jewish Food Festival on Sunday May 7th 2017.
