Moxie Goes Artsy

2019 Moxie Festival Call for Art

It’s official!  Lisbon’s Moxie Festival Committee today issued a call for artwork.  Each year, the Moxie Festival Committee selects artwork to be used for t-shirts, posters, and branded items. The selected artwork will be consistent with the fun 2019 theme of “Moxie Goes Artsy.” The Moxie Festival committee selected this theme to inspire a “distinctively different” visual representation of the Moxie spirit, which by dictionary definition means energy, pep, and courage.  It’s also the official beverage of the state of Maine. The committee is seeking an artistic image as iconic as the beverage itself.

Festival organizer Julie-Ann Baumer said the committee is looking for submissions from Maine artists.  “We are looking for a unique look and feel for this year’s festival artwork, given the theme. There are so many amazing and hardworking creative people here in Maine. I look forward to seeing their work.”

The three-day festival, celebrated at the peak of summer with a parade, a 5k run, live music, and many other events, is a glorious homage to the distinctively different beverage, Moxie. The winning artwork will be reproduced on an exclusive and collectible T-shirt, posters, and other festival-branded items.  In addition to seeing their artwork proudly displayed on thousands of T-shirts sold and worn during the Moxie Festival, this year the winner will receive a $750 cash prize, media recognition, the first 2019 printed T-shirt, and the opportunity to judge parade floats designed and inspired by the theme.

The deadline for entries is Thursday, January 31, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. Winners will be selected by the Moxie Festival Committee. The winner will be announced on Thursday, February 14, 2019. Complete details and guidelines are currently both online at www.moxiefestival.com or at the MTM Community Center, 18 School Street, Lisbon Falls, Maine.

The Moxie Festival, celebrating Maine’s official soft drink, is always the second weekend in July. Mark your calendars for the 2019 Moxie Festival, July 12 – 14, 2019. If you have questions please contact Julie-Ann Baumer at jbaumer@lisbonme.org.
