Ravinia Annual Poster Design Competition 2020

For over 40 years, the Ravinia Women’s Board has sponsored an annual competition to create the design that will become the unique poster used to promote the festival’s upcoming season. The poster design becomes a distinctive signature of the Ravinia season. It should therefore convey the rich experience of enjoying outstanding musical performances in this lush and historic outdoor park.

Winning Poster The annual poster is used to promote the Ravinia summer season. For over 50 years, the Women’s Board has been heavily involved in fundraising for Ravinia, supporting its outreach and education programs, enhancing the beauty of the park, developing loyal and new audiences, sponsoring a summertime concert, running the Ravinia Festival Shop and chair rental, and much more!
