Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association


Each year, MOFGA hosts a poster design contest to find a design that captures the essence of the Common Ground Country Fair.

The 40th annual Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled to an enthusiastic crowd at the Maine Agricultural Trades Show on January 12! Toki Oshima created this vibrant illustration of 'Rainbow' Swiss chard. Posters are available on MOFGA's online Country Store.

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.

Complete 2017 Poster Contest guidelines, including technical specifications, eligibility requirements and timeline, and an entry form are available via the link below.
