Call for Creatives

Iowa Public Radio is looking for a fresh new design from an Iowan artist to be used on our 2022-2023 member t-shirt, mugs, stickers and more!

This is your opportunity to show us what IPR looks like to you.

IPR is a non-profit public radio network serving the State of Iowa. We are celebrating 100 years of broadcasting in 2022! Radio was the first technology to bring news, information and music directly into one's home or space for a shared experience. Public radio's mission is to enrich civic and cultural life through high-quality journalism and by showcasing local music and classical performances.

Some details:
- The design we are looking for includes elements that represent Iowa Public Radio: storytelling, community, connection, history, radio, Iowa, news, music, belonging and shared experiences.
- Designs with 1-3 colors are optimal for shirt printing.
- Artists may submit more than one design
- IPR and the winning artist will enter into a contact for licensing and parameters for use
- Runner-up submissions may be selected for a mug, calendar, sticker or future design

Top Award: $600 and featured on IPR's 2022-2023 member t-shirt
Other Awards: $100 if selected for alternative print purposes

Designs will be chosen based on how well they fit the project objectives, their ability to fit within IPR's printing constraints and overall creativity.

How to Apply:
Email a sketch or completed design to membership@iowapublicradio.org including the following information: Your name, city, phone number, email and links to your other works, if any.

Submission Deadline is Friday, July 8, 2022

*If selected, IPR staff may ask artists for small design or color changes with a final deadline of August 19 for any requested changes
