Redesign Reykjavik Calling Contest is a graphic design poster contest that is offering a grand prize of $1,000 for the best original design created for the Reykjavik Calling concert.
A nod to the rock and roll anthem “London Calling” by The Clash, Reykjavik Calling is a free concert that features unique collaborations between Icelandic and North American musicians and is held during the “A Taste of Iceland” weekend of cultural events throughout the year. Icelandic musicians travel to the host North American city, meet their local musician partners and perform collaborative, never-before heard sets for the Reykjavik Calling concert. Reykjavik Calling concerts have taken place in Boston, Denver, Seattle and Washington D.C., and will be expanding to more in 2013. You can learn more about past Reykjavik Calling concerts here.
Submissions to the Redesign Reykjavik Calling Contest must be submitted via email to IcelandNatural@gmail.com by Wednesday, January 30 at 11:59 PM EST. Please note that designers who are not selected as the winner will maintain all rights to the designs they submit. Complete contest rules and regulations can be found here, and the full contest description is here.
