You can become a part of next year’s Jazz Festival through a poster contest they haveve set up. If your work is chosen, you will receive $1,000 cash prize, VIP passes to the festival, associated merchandise, and a complimentary booth space at the Art in the Heart Downtown juried art show and sale during the 2012 Jacksonville Jazz Festival. But get to painting (or whatever medium you choose) fast! The deadline for all submitted artwork is September 6, 2011.
