WHISTLER VILLAGE BEER FESTIVAL DESIGN COMPETITION
Design our #WVBF2017 Stage Backdrop!

Artist entry
Thank you for participating in the Whistler Village Beer Festival design competition. This year, we have decided to
include a massive backdrop display on the Main Stage at Whistler Olympic Plaza for our two-day Main Event.
We’re excited to work with local artists to find the best possible design for this backdrop, and that design could be
yours!

The theme of this year’s competition is BEER IN THE MOUNTAINS. All designs MUST include #fortheloveofbeer
somewhere on the image. The rest of the design is up to you, the more creative the better! All entries must be
high quality digital images that will be able to be blown up to 144” x 96”.

Pub. Here, the winner of the grand prize will be decided by the public (so invite your friends)! Plus, prizes for 2nd
