PKN Bangor Poster Contest – Spring 2021

PechaKucha Night Bangor seeks visually compelling submissions from creatives who are interested in using their artwork to promote our next PKN Night at the Bangor Arts Exchange on March 12, 2020.  We are seeking submissions for our official event poster. The selected artist will receive a $100!

PechaKucha is a global storytelling platform that celebrates people, passion, and creative thought. PechaKucha’s 20×20 presentation format shows your 20 chosen images, each for 20 seconds. In other words, you’ve got 400 seconds to tell your story, with visuals guiding the way. PechaKucha means “chit chat” in Japanese. This creative outlet began as nighttime get-togethers in Tokyo in 2003 by two renowned architects. Since then, three million people have attended PechaKucha events worldwide. Now it’s your turn to share your story with our PechaKucha Poster Competition!

Submissions are due by midnight on February 19th. The top 4 submissions will be shared via social media and voted on by the public and the PKN organizers, with the winning submission being announced on February 26th.
