Illustrate the Cover of the Bristol 650 book
Throughout 2023, we're running Bristol 650, a project which marks the 650th anniversary of Bristol becoming an independent city and county. It's a year-long celebration of all things Bristol: who we are, where we come from, what we’ve done – and where we’re going.
As part of the Bristol 650 project, we’re bringing together a collection of newly commissioned essays about the future of Bristol. The book will be given away at this year’s Festival of the Future City.
We’re looking to commission a locally based artist to create an illustration for the cover of the book. There is a fee of £500 for the illustration. A full timeline for the project is provided in the brief, but the project will be working on a quick turnaround, with the appointed artist providing an initial design in June and supplying the final illustration in July 2023.
To apply, please send us:
- A short explanation of why this commission is of interest and the particular contribution you can make.
- Two examples of previous work, demonstrating your style.
Applications must be received by noon on Tuesday 23 May. Please send material to firstname.lastname@example.org (email direct or use WeTransfer). The chosen artist will be notified on 30 May.
