Gemini Print and Brighton Fringe celebrated their launch of the DESIGN for PRINT Award 2022, and the party saw performances from Brighton’s finest drag queens.
Brighton Fringe Festival launches on the 6th May, and with over 700 events to enjoy, the anticipation is high. Long-standing print partners Gemini Print are again supporting the diversity and creativity of all performers, venues, producers, and designers with the DESIGN for PRINT Award 2022.
Gemini Print chose the iconic Brighton Open Air Theatre to celebrate the launch of the Award. Sales Direction Mark Tulley was joined by host Alfie Ordinary at Drag in the Park: Lipsync Extravaganza as he welcomed Brighton’s finest lipsyncers. There were performances from the reigning queen of Brighton’s Big Drag Pageant Tayris Mongardi, Brighton drag icon Lydia L’Scabies, international drag star Alexis St Pete, queerlesque drag hag Alpha Bites, and Cilly Black.
Mark said: “As the planet-positive printing firm that has strong partnerships with the arts, community organisations, and education across the region, it is always a pleasure for us to announce that the Gemini Print and Brighton Fringe DESIGN for PRINT Award is open for entries!”
“The judging panel is looking forward to the challenge of reviewing all the entries, plus taking account of the level of votes and support from the public that any design has attracted. The winner will be announced at the Awards ceremony at the Brighton Fringe closing event on 5th June.”
Title Sussex editor-in-chief Sam Harrington-Lowe is proud to be a judge again this year, and is excited to see the designs. “There is always some insanely creative artwork,” she said. “I’m looking forward to seeing who ends up shortlisted by the public votes.”
The winner will receive £200 in design and print services. For more information, click here.
