Local artists: try your hand at designing the 2012 Wine + Food Festival poster

Image by Flickr user Lst1984 Here's to hoping that your submission is a little more....detailed and artistic...than this poster.

The 2012 BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival is scheduled for March 1st through 4th, but one thing is missing: a killer event poster.

So, the folks behind the festival are calling all local artists to enter the 2012 poster competition. If you live in Berkeley, Charleston, or Dorchester County; are at least 18 years old; and have an artist's eye, then step up and do your best designing an unforgettable poster.

Use the culinary culture of the Holy City as your inspiration, and incorporate elements of the lucky number seven for extra points (it is the festival's seventh year, after all). Once your muse has finished speaking, get those submissions in by Sept. 16th for the chance to win $1,000 and the title of Official Poster Artist.
