Showing off your best creativity could place your artwork on the front of the official 12th Annual Hatchie Fall Fest T-shirts that will be worn by festival goers and anyone else who has a keen sense for fashion. The design competition is open to everyone, so that includes you and the only requirement is the words “Hatchie Fall Fest” must be incorporated into your design.
The Hatchie Fall Fest has been held annually in Brownsville, Tennessee on the third Saturday of October for 13 years. Although the festival is a community event and highlights the best of Brownsville and Haywood County, people from all over Tennessee and beyond attend. Hatchie Fall Fest is a family-fun and free-to-attend day full of music, children’s activities, arts and crafts, wrestling, cake and pie competitions and so much more. The art contest is another was to promote community and the annual festival. Artists are encouraged to submit entries for the contest, but you do not have to be a skilled or highly recognized artist to compete.
“This is a great opportunity for young people to showcase their creativity and I hope an encouragement to those with artistic talents to pursue their passion,” said Sonya Clark. Director of the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville. “Expressing yourself through art is a great way to connect for youth and adults.”
Clark is one of the many dedicated volunteers who put on the annual festival in Brownsville where the center is located. The West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center offers a number of opportunities for you to learn more about the Brownsville and Haywood County community. Did you know the oldest synagogue – Son Bonds, Tina Turner and Jarvis Varnado all have roots in Brownsville? That should be plenty to give you inspiration to design the winning T-shirt, which would earn you:
• $100 cash
• Four (4) complimentary t-shirts.
• Recognition on the Festival websites with a link to artist website, if applicable.
• Recognition throughout the festival.
“We will display all entries during the month of October (maybe before) and while the festival is in Brownsville. We love all of West Tennessee and want to create a family friendly atmosphere for everyone,” said Clark.
Artists may submit one entry, with up to a maximum of three colors and using any medium. Consideration should be given to the artwork being used on light and dark colored shirts. Along with the name of the event, it is suggested artists include “Brownsville, Tennessee” and “2016” in their artwork. Submissions are due by Sunday, May 1 and may be delivered electronically or by mail or hand.
