Schools are invited to submit students’ poster designs to the CSMFA competition, to advertise the 2019 festival season.
Click to look at the graphics from previous years – they were all winners!

Children participating in the Festival are Primary and Intermediate School pupils and the judges look for entries which reflect, in some way, both the choral and instrumental aspects of the Music Festival. 2019 will be the very special 80th year of the festival. The tentative theme for the 2019 Music festival is “Around the World in 80 Years” – the songs will represent some interpretation of this theme. The winning entry will best include representations of the theme in the musical context the festival.

The judges will be looking for one winning entry. It is intended that this will be used for inclusion in our poster, print advertisements and reduced to become the Programme cover and ticketing icons.

The prize offered is:
$100.00 to the winning artist and $100.00 to his/her school
