Ravinia Annual Poster Design Competition 2017

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 Ravinia Women’s Board would like to congratulate the winner of its annual Ravinia season poster competition. The winning design came from Evan Clark from Lansing, MI. He wins a $1,000 cash prize and his design is featured in the promotion of the upcoming 2017 Ravinia season, distributed among hundreds of Chicagoland stores and public spaces, and is now on sale exclusively at Ravinia Gifts.

After winning an honorable mention for his design in 2013, Clark continued to enter the annual contest until ultimately prevailing as the winning artist this year. Second place went to Cheryl Beverly of Deerfield, IL, third place to Jamari Wilson of Calumet City, and honorable mentions to Ryan Widmer of Barlett, MI and Lila Roblin of Schaumburg, IL.
