The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) is excited to announce that the Common Ground Country Fair 
Poster Design Contest for the 2017 Fair is accepting submissions. The Common Ground Country Fair poster is the highly regarded image that promotes MOFGA's annual celebration of rural living.

The winning artist receives $2,500, a press release, and is highlighted in MOFGA's quarterly newspaper, The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener. The selected design is also featured on the Fair poster, website, T-shirt and in promotional literature. The theme of the design must align with MOFGA's mission and the general guidelines for participating in the Fair. We welcome all Maine residents and MOFGA members to enter submissions by August 5, 2016, only a few weeks away. The poster guidelines and application are available at www.mofga.org/TheFair/Poster.
