Midsumma’s 2024 Cover Art Commission is OPEN!


Midsumma Festival invites artists, photographers, illustrators, designers and ALL creatives to enter a design that could become the front cover of the 2024 Midsumma Festival program guide and motif for the festival. This is a paid commission.

We’re inviting YOU to submit draft sketches, designs, or creative examples of your ideas. We’re looking for a piece of art that captures the focus of Midsumma Festival 2024 (we’ve provided some ideas and themes to help get the creative juices flowing!)

Anyone can enter

A commission of $3000 is available for the successful proposal submission. $500 is also available to artists who continue through to the final round. Submission close at 5 pm Friday 2 June 2023.
