In honor of KFJC's 50th year on the air (we started broadcasting out of a closet in
Mountain View, California in 1959), we're hosting an art competition!!!
Here's the deal. If you have concepts for a unique piece of KFJC artwork, a new KFJC
logo or a 50th Anniversary-themed KFJC T-shirt, please send them in. Winners will receive
cash honorariums and will be featured in a special exhibition September 4, 2009 at
Kalied Gallery in San Jose, CA. KFJC Staff and management have invited Sunny Buick,
the 2002 Girlie Shirt artist, to participate as a guest judge
Artwork should fall into one of the three following categories:
- KFJC Logo
- Artist T-Shirt Design
- Mixed media / Freeform
KFJC lovers show their loyalty to the station by donning their favorite KFJC logo
T-shirts or slapping stickers emblazoned with the KFJC logo on their preferred mode
of transportation. We're seeking new interpretations of "KFJC 89.7 FM" in logo form
and invite your submissions in this category.
Some of our current logos include:
ARTIST T-SHIRT DESIGN
Over the years we've had a huge number of fantastic contributing artists for our
limited edition fundraiser garb, including (but not limited to): Niagara, Sunny
Buick, Arik Roper, Emek, Strk3, Mike King, Webster Colcord, Plastic Crimewave,
Mike Zorn, Mike Davis, Frances Marin, Chris Reccardi, Robert Williams, and GAMA-GO!

This year we're looking for new T-shirt design submissions that celebrate KFJC's
50 years of broadcasting (since 1959!). Please make mention of that in your artwork.
MIXED MEDIA / FREEFORM
Perhaps you have an equally inspired idea for a sculpture, drawing,
collage, photo, or other mixed media approach that is an
homage to KFJC. Submit your piece (no original artwork, please) for consideration
in the "mixed media / freeform" category. Be sure to include some mention of KFJC
in your artwork (89.7 FM, KFJC, "Wave of the West," etc.).
