The BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival is seeking entries for its sixth annual poster competition. The winning design will be featured on posters and promotional materials, and the artist will receive recognition plus $1,000. Artists are encouraged to design a piece that reflects Charleston’s culinary culture.

To enter, you must be at least 18 years of age and a resident of Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester county. You’ll be expected to deliver the mounted artwork along with appropriate paperwork — including an artist statement and entry form — to festival offices at One Cool Blow by Sept. 16. The winner will be announced by Nov. 4.

Entry is free, but don’t expect to get your work back if you don’t win — it automatically becomes festival property once you enter it into the contest. For more info, e-mail
