Area artists are invited to create artwork in a community-wide contest for the 2013 East West Riverfest event guide. East West Riverfest, scheduled for Sept. 6-22, is a celebration of the arts, culture and heritage offerings in the Quad-Cities by artists, performers, organizations, attractions, events and businesses.
Quad-City area artists 18 and older are invited to submit a cover design, which should include the East West Riverfest logo. Send a high-resolution electronic file, in color, of the finished artwork by email to Jessica Waytenick at by 5 p.m April 15. Complete rules are available at
“After the success of the first East West Riverfest last September, the Experience Quad-Cities Advisory Board wanted the 2013 Event Guide cover to reflect the cultural spirit of the event and to feature a local designer,” said Jared Johnson, advisory board member.
The image will be used throughout East West Riverfest marketing and publicity. The winning design will be announced by June 15.
