Each year, MOFGA hosts a poster design contest to find a design that captures the essence of the Common Ground Country Fair.
The 2017 Commmon Ground Country Fair poster was unvelied during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine's climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, with is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair.
MOFGA invites Maine residents and MOFGA members (regardless of residence) to submit a design for our Common Ground Country Fair poster. The selected design is featured on the Fair poster, website, T-shirt and promotional literature. The winning artist receives $2,500 and is featured in MOFGA's quarterly newspaper, "The Maine Organic Farmer and Gardener," and in various press announcements.
