Band Poster Competition

 
 
 

Savannah Stopover and Sulfur Studios invites graphic and visual artists to create posters inspired by the individual bands taking part in this year’s festival. An annual tradition since Stopover #1 in 2011, we love involving our artistic community through our Band Poster Competition and every year we're blown away by the submissions!

Submitting a poster is easy  and can be completed online right on this page. Artists are invited to choose a band from the confirmed lineup at (savannahstopover.com/lineup) and create a poster using the specifications outlined below.
