Want to design a poster for New Order? De La Soul? Stevie Wonder? Bestival, Screenadelica and CR are offering readers the chance to design a poster for one of the headline acts at Bestival 2012 which will be sold for charity at the event.

Each year Bestival and Screenadelica stage a show of screenprinted gig posters by UK and Irish illustrators and designers at the music festival (CR subscribers will have seen some of these in our December Monograph).

For this year’s festival, Screenadelica and Bestival are staging an open competition to create a poster for one of the headline acts: Stevie Wonder, New Order, The xx, Sigor Rós, Bat for Lashes, Justice, Orbital, Gallows, De La Soul, The Horrors, Roots Manuva and one more headliner still to be announced.

The winning design, as chosen by a panel of Bestival head honcho Rob da Bank, Creative Review editor Patrick Burgoyne, Bestival programme editor Sean Bidder and the good folk from Screenadelica, will be printed and sold at the festival with 100% of profits going to the Bestival Foundation.

All details are here. Deadline: June 1.

Here are some of last year’s posters by way of inspiration:
