The Hummingbird Festival volunteer committee holds an annual art contest to choose an original painting that will be used for that year's poster, t-shirt, guidebook cover, online promotions, and advertising. The artist and chosen painting are featured in local media, on the Hummingbird Festival website, and on Facebook. The original painting is professionally framed, presented as a gift to the Hogansville City Council, and proudly hung at City Hall.
This is 2017 Hummingbird Festival Artist Trent Cannon
A graphic designer takes the original art and crafts an original design that will be the visual presentation for the entire season. Leading up to the festival, the commemorative posters can be seen in store windows all around Hogansville and surrounding communities. Festival attendees buy the posters and t-shirts, raising funds for the Hummingbird Festival (a 100% volunteer-driven and charity-based event for the Hogansville Charitable Trust). We know of festival fans who have been collecting the posters for years and have them framed in their homes.
The contest for the 2018 Hummingbird Festival original art is open now. Your painting could be chosen!
