* prizes: $300 cash
$50 gift certificate to
and more to come...

Email your submissions to with "Velopalooza poster" in the subject line. (if it's a big file, e-mail a link to download it from.)

Things that need to be included in the poster are:

* Velopalooza
* June 3rd-19th 2011
* Two weeks of Bike Fun
* a space for sponsor logos

Submissions should be a black and white or color rgb png, tiff, or jpeg (300dpi), and if chosen you should also be able to supply a vector format.

Design for 11x17 inches. but also be able to scale (with tweaks) to various sizes:

* poster (both 11 x 17in and 19x27in)
* handbill (4.5 x 5.5in)
* web site (approx. 250 x 313px)
* magazine cover (8.5 x 11in)

It's probably a good idea to keep text on separate layers, as the text may need to change a bit

Last year's poster was used in the Georgia Straight, on the cover of Common Ground, printed on t-shirts and can be seen on our website at (and while you're there check out the upcoming rides.)


Velopalooza is 17 days of bikey fun. With 4 events, most organized by individuals, bikers of all persuasions are likely to find many events of interest. Nearly all events are free.
