The City of Greer Freedom Blast is a summer festival honoring our veterans and current US Armed Forces. Freedom Blast has become a great reason for our community to gather annually to pay our respects to our past and present Armed Service members.
This year, we want you to be involved in making this event even bigger and better. Use your talents to create one dynamic image to represent the City of Greer Freedom Blast in any 2D media you choose. The winning artwork will be used for promotional flyers, the festival t-shirt, and all multi-media materials. All eligible entries will be displayed in the Wall Gallery in City Hall during Freedom Blast.
Each entry must be inspired by or represent a patriotic theme (i.e. military appreciation, July 4th activities, Freedom Blast, etc.)
All 2D media acceptable, winner to be reproduced & printed by 4-color process.
The exhibition will not be judged in media or age categories. Works must not exceed 20 inches in any direction including the frame.
All original works must be received ready to hang with appropriate hardware in place.
The City of Greer Freedom Blast judges will serve as final authority on eligibility.
