Calling All Artists! Design for Fraggle Rock!

Greetings, Muppet fans! We’re reaching out to YOU with a very exciting opportunity from our friends at The Jim Henson Company. We mentioned this contest on the site a few weeks ago, but we don’t feel like we gave it the spotlight it deserves. The Jim Henson Company is hosting an art competition asking any and all artists to submit their design artwork based on Fraggle Rock! The prizes are multiple and incredibly awesome and the exposure it will bring you as an artist will be even more great. Check out the official press release below…

Since Fraggle Rock’s creation in 1983 it has been seen in 80 countries and watched in a least ten different languages and, to this day, continues to enjoy a loyal international following. In celebration of Fraggle Rock’s 30th anniversary, The Jim Henson Company is inviting artists to submit artwork* inspired by the world of Fraggle Rock and it’s characters including the Fraggles, The Doozers, Sprocket, Traveling Matt and the Gorgs. One winner will have their artwork featured and produced on select merchandise items for Fraggle Rock’s 30th anniversary, in addition to receiving a private tour of the Jim Henson design studios, followed by invitation to Fraggle Rock’s 30th Anniversary party in Los Angeles.
