Cincinnati Coffee Festival is a major fundraiser for Ohio River Foundation, a Cincinnati-based nonprofit with successful programs dedicated to protecting and improving the water quality and ecology of the Ohio River and its watershed. Coffee has a natural connection to that mission. The festival’s tagline is “Without Great Water, You Can’t Have Great Coffee.”

The design of the poster must be adaptable for any and all uses including the poster, t-shirts, program material, and other Festival uses.

The winning poster will be chosen by a panel of judges selected by the Cincinnati Coffee Festival.

The artist must be 18 years of age or older and reside within 75 miles of downtown Cincinnati. Artists may submit more than one entry (each entry requires an individual entry form). Questions can be directed to Judi Cogen at
