For many major holidays, the City sends out a graphic or message on our social channels depicting custom B’s, similar to the ones below from last year's Holiday 'B' Contest:
With hundreds of holidays, our designers aren’t able to create custom artwork for all holidays . That’s where the artists of Boston come in.
We’re asking local artists, students and residents to choose a holiday - any holiday! - and create an idea for a custom B. Your imagination is your only limit -- send us a as complete a design as possible to represent the B for your chosen holiday.
A team of individuals from the Digital Team and the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture will review each proposal and pick projects based on the best creative expression of the represented holiday. We will then ask the selected artist to make the artwork.
Up to 25 proposals, each representing a different holiday, will be selected.
HOW TO SUBMIT:
You must be an artist living or working in the city of Boston.
You can send as many submissions as you would like. Only one submission per holiday.
Application will open on April 1, 2021.
Deadline for proposals is 5 p.m. on April 30, 2021.
All proposals and eventual submission must be digital and uploaded to Submittable.
