Call for entries: Signal-Return hosts music poster contest



Attention, Detroit's creative class: Eastern Market letterpress studio Signal-Return is currently accepting submissions for a poster contest inspired by Detroit's rich musical heritage. (Full disclosure: I'm on the jury, along with WDET's Ann Delisi and Robin Terry of the Motown Museum.)

The three winning designers will get a private lesson in letterpress printing from Signal-Return's printer in residence. A limited edition series of the posters will be made and sold in Signal-Return's shop, and winners will then be able to utilize Signal-Return's open studio in the future.

The deadline to submit designs is Dec. 16, and winners will be announced Jan. 13. Check out the contest page on Signal-Return's website for the full list of rules.

We welcome readers to submit letters regarding articles and content in Detroit Metro Times. Letters should be a minimum of 150 words, refer to content that has appeared on Detroit Metro Times, and must include the writer's full name, address, and phone number for verification purposes. No attachments will be considered. Writers of letters selected for publication will be notified via email. Letters may be edited and shortened for space.
