Pollinator Partnership is seeking an artist to render the 2021 Pollinator Poster, this year focusing on “Pollinators and Agriculture: A partnership on the land.”
ELIGIBILITY: (not stated)
DEADLINE: November 27, 2020
Note: the application process for this opportunity requires the applicant to submit a poster design. The applicant is not compensated for this up-front design work.
Pollinator Partnership (P2) and its signature initiative, the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC), address issues of pollinator health and decline using many resources and projects. We are dealing with a complex issue that does not have a simple solution, but by addressing each area where pollinators interface with people we can make a significant impact in pollinator, ecosystem, and human health. One way we address this issue is through outreach, education, and action.
Each year, P2 and NAPPC, along with a wide range of partners (including federal agencies, non-profits, for-profits, individuals, etc.) design and distribute an educational pollinator poster. About 100,000 posters are distributed throughout the United States each year. They are one of the most popular outreach material items offered and are distributed for the cost of shipping and handling.
2021 Poster Image – Vision
Promoting healthy pollinators in agricultural settings has a direct impact on the quality and quantity of crops being produced, while simultaneously benefiting the health of humans, plants, and the planet. Actions for pollinators on farms, like the planting of habitat including buffers, pollinator gardens, hedgerows, and cover crops, improves the health of our air, water, and soil, positively impacting farming operations. Pollinators and their habitat can economically benefit farmers through increased yield, decreased maintenance, and less reliance on chemical inputs. Pollinators in-turn rely on croplands and adjacent natural areas for forage, nesting, and refuge.
We envision this poster being an artistic depiction of the harmony that can be achieved when agricultural landscapes embrace pollinator-friendly management practices. Such Best Management Practices focus on maintaining healthy populations of both managed honey bees and wild pollinators in farm settings. Best Management Practices include:
The most important part of creating any poster is to make it a beautiful work of art that also communicates an idea or behavior that supports pollinator heath. A scientific/naturalistic style is preferred. P2 staff will work with the artist on scientific accuracy and detail. To view past pollinator posters, please visit http://pollinator.org/posters.htm.
There is flexibility with the size of the poster, but past posters have ranged from 30 in x 12 in to 30 in x 32 in (including a galley at the bottom of the poster for partner logos). We suggest using a standard poster size so that the poster may easily be framed.
Pollinator Partnership will own the rights to the final submitted digital artwork.
