The Trailing of the Sheep Festival—the Wood River Valley’s premier October offering—has issued a call for artists to submit original designs for festival merchandise.

Artists are asked to create sheep-themed designs that can be used on official festival merchandise such as T-shirts and hoodies. Selected artworks will be marketed with a proper artist’s credit and in the printed program, which circulates more than 2,000 copies annually.

The successful applicant will also be given a complimentary booth at the 2020 Sheepdog Trials to invite and sell work, should he or she choose to do so.

Artists may submit three photos of completed work along with an artist’s statement to the festival’s executive director, Laura Drake, at laura@trailingofthesheep.org.
