Interested in poster design? Are you a great artist, illustrator or creator? Do you want to be seen all over Liverpool in connection with the Liverpool Irish Festival and an internationally renowned music talent? Yes? Then this is the call for you!

In partnership with Mellowtone, the Liverpool Irish Festival seeks a lead image to support Seafoam Green’s festival event at

  • The Vines (81 Lime Street, L1 1JQ) on Fri 20 Oct 2017
  • Tickets: £10 (+booking fee)
  • Tickets will be available from:

This is an opportunity to have your artwork used across the city in all the promotion for this incredible event. It will be the lead image for all the event posters and leaflets, as well as all the print listings for the festival, online event listings and other adverts in partner listings.

It is a great way to take your work to new audiences and we will ensure it is fully credited with every use by Liverpool Irish Festival or Mellowtone.

The image supplied needs to be submitted digitally, with a suitable print resolution (300dpi min) for up to A0 (841x1189mm/33.1×468.8in) printing. You need to include in your design – one of the Liverpool Irish Festival logos, the Mellowtone tree logo and one other of the Mellowtone brands provided. You may use the inspiration file for reference.  (Logos can be found here). The origins of the work can be in any medium, but based on its use for posters and promotion it will need to be supplied to us in this format. We recommend using WeTransfer. Please be aware Ts and Cs apply.

The panel expect that creators will consider – and possibly reference – Seafoam Green’s work, style or lyrics. We recommend using the most recent album Topanga Mansion (you can listen to samples here) as a start point. Alternatively, a short biography about Seafoam Green is available here:

We would also consider images that reference the event’s unique venue.

Because of the various ways the image will go on to be used, we advise only submitting an image and not a poster design, over which we can overlay the necessary text. This will allow for last minute changes, but also to will enable us to use the image across all platforms.

All entries should be submitted to [email protected] by 15th September 2017. If you have any questions or thoughts, don’t hesitate to contact us on [email protected]. Dave O’Grady (Seafoam Green) is happy to answer creative queries, please send them over to us and we’ll make sure they’re sent on.
