Boston Bluegrass Union
Second Annual Graphic Contest
2013 Joe Val Bluegrass Festival
The Boston Bluegrass Union (BBU) is excited to announce a graphic contest for our 28th annual Joe Val Bluegrass Festival. Our first contest - for last year’s festival - was such a success, we’re doing it again! The 28th Joe Val festival will take place February 15, 16, and 17, 2013.
The BBU is the preeminent bluegrass music organization in New England. We’re an all-volunteer association promoting and supporting bluegrass festivals, concerts, jams, and bluegrass music education throughout the Northeast. In addition to the Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, we produce several concerts throughout the year. We organize bluegrass jams and picking parties and support bluegrass music workshops for children and adults. Contrary to what our name suggests, we are not a labor or musicians’ union; we're just a bunch of volunteers working to help keep bluegrass music alive in America.
The New England area is one of the hottest bluegrass music scenes in North America, and we invite you to come listen, learn, and play this wonderful music.

The Joe Val Bluegrass Festival is an award-winning music festival and is the largest indoor bluegrass music festival in the Northeast, attracting musicians and fans from all over North America. The festival celebrates the legacy of the late Joe Val, a bluegrass pioneer in New England, with three big days of bluegrass at the Sheraton Hotel in Framingham, MA. The festival features a great lineup of national and regional talent, dozens of workshops, educational programs, music vendors, and around-the-clock picking. Our 2006 festival won the coveted "Event of the Year" award from the International Bluegrass Music Association.
We invite you to show your creative genius by creating a graphic for our 2013 event.
The graphic will be used on festival t-shirts - both those for sale to the public (approximately 150) and those worn by the attendees of the BBU Kids’ Academy (approximately 40) and the festival staff (over 100). These t-shirts will be worn for years to come. The graphic will also be used in the festival promotional material, the festival program book, and on the BBU website and Facebook page.
The contest winner will receive a cash prize of $150, one complimentary weekend ticket to the festival, a festival t-shirt with the graphic, and recognition in the festival program book, the BBU website, and the BBU Facebook page.
