PORTSMOUTH, NH. September 12, 2019. On Tuesday, December 31st, the Seacoast will say farewell to 2019 and greet 2020 and a new decade with the celebration of First Night® Portsmouth. As has become the tradition with Pro Portsmouth events, the artists of the Seacoast are invited to submit their work for consideration to become the logo for First Night® Portsmouth.

This event marks the beginning of Pro Portsmouth’s 43rd year of producing events on the Seacoast (we’re now the only community hosting a First Night in NH!) and once again, the organization looks forward to working with the artistic community in creating this year’s First Night® logo.

Deadline for entries: Friday, October 18, 2019

Send entries to: Barbara Massar – Pro Portsmouth, Inc. – P.O. Box 967 – Portsmouth, NH 03802
Email entries to: (JPEGS, please)

• Graphic design, painting (watercolor, oils, etc.) mixed are fine – the key factor: can we successfully scan your work in order to create the button, poster, merchandise, etc.
• Scannable-sized pieces (for us, 8.5” x 11”)
• Bold colors (maximum 6) work well

Possible ideas/ themes for the image:
• Celebration
• Holidays/Winter
• The Seacoast of New Hampshire
• Start of a new decade
• Pro Portsmouth standard of “Arts, Culture, History, Community”
• Previous FNP logos can be viewed below

• The top three artists will be eligible for prizes of $300 (1st), $125 (2nd) and $75 (3rd) • The artwork is used on all First Night® Portsmouth 2020 merchandise, the FNP Button, social media and collateral that Pro Portsmouth produces for the event.
