5. What if my file is too large to send in an email?

You can upload your file to Google Drive, Dropbox, or WeTransfer and share the link with us.

6. When is the deadline to submit my poster and song file?

Monday, November 21st at 8pm. We need to send all files to the printer and allow them time to print, cut, and send us the final prints.

7. Why do I need to submit my printed poster by Monday, November 21st at 8pm, if the show isn’t until December 3rd?

We need time to layout and organize all prints to make sure they look great in the space.

8. Is there a limit to how many posters I can submit?

The limit does not exist. Just submit a form and pay for each poster submission.

9. Can I screenprint or hand-draw my poster?

Sorry, not this year :( For everyone's safety we are not accepting self-printed posters or arranging a poster drop-off this year.

10. Can I sell my poster?

Yes. But you’ll probably want to handle that over social media or your own website. Artists are responsible for their own transactions. We ask that posters remain on display for the entirety of the event.

11. Where can I pick-up my poster?

You'll be able to take your poster home at the end of the event or at any of our monthly Cocktails and Creative's through March 2023.
