At NFE we love art. Love design. Love colour and love eclectic.
Now we are looking for our 2019 illustrator. Details below.
Developing your work and name:
The artist we choose may have unprecedented access to some of the most exclusive houses and the locations across the forest. We want the relationship to be inclusive into our company and the artist will be welcomed to comment on our work generally. In turn we will support them to share their creativity across social media alongside our brand, to use technology to celebrate their skills (video interview, time-lapse photography) to develop their art through the year and promote them to new markets.
Please supply each composition as 2 separate images, as one will be shown on larger screens and the other will be shown on smaller screens.
For the large image use a canvas measuring 1800px by 768px @72dpi and save your image as a jpg. The smaller image has a squarer aspect ratio and the canvas needs to be 950px by 780px @72dpi, again save your image as a jpg. You don’t need to optimise the images for web use, but it would be helpful if you can.
The composition for each image can differ slightly to allow for the differing aspect ratios, for example the larger image might contain 3 elements that become only 2 elements on the squarer version, or the elements may be smaller and sit closer together, it’s up to you! See the current live homepage at different screen sizes for an example.
Lastly, the images must not have any “hard edges” so if your elements bleed off the canvas please fade them out with an eraser tool.
Second 5 images due to NFE in digital render be end of Jan 2019.
Any more images requested by NFE will be paid for at the same rate £50 per image.
New Forest Escapes will own the rights and usage of the final chosen illustration/work that is submitted as part of this competition.
This contract is for 1 year only. Either can withdraw with up to 6 months notice, in writing.
NFE reserve the right to extend the time frames of the competition.
The maximum reward for the winner is £1000. Approx’ £50 per image.
Any previous illustrators who have worked with NFE cannot enter further competitions in the future.
