Festival producer Dougie Brown said: “We are really excited to launch this design tender and work with an exciting new Scottish artist.

“Alongside the festival having a fresh and exciting design for our 2022 artwork, we look forward to providing an opportunity for an emerging artist or designer to showcase their work to our loyal Bella audience.”

The design tender is open to all students currently studying at Scottish arts schools and colleges, and those who have graduated in the last 12 months.

The theme for next year’s event – running from July 28-30 – is myths and legends. Inspiration can be taken from the tales, stories, music and poetry locally and across Scotland.

Belladrum is Scotland’s largest music and performing arts camping festival and launched in 2004 as a 2000-capacity one-day event. By 2019, it had grown to a 20,000-capacity three-day festival.

Family is at the heart of Belladrum which prides itself on its entertainment for all ages from tots to teenagers, parents and grandparents. Away from the main Garden stage, the line-up includes household names and festival favourites with numerous stages programming a huge variety of entertainment.

The winning artwork will be used for all 2022 official festival branding, including the main line-up poster, website skinning, social media branding, on-site newspaper branding, all public and industry facing marketing materials, official newsletter branding.

Students are asked to submit a short written proposal along with examples of their work for consideration by the deadline of January 10.

All entries should be emailed to hello@tartanheartfestival.co.uk with the subject line ‘Design Project’. The winning entry will be chosen by late January. The winner will work with the festival team to create the festival’s official 2022 poster artwork and receive a fee of £1,500.
