Additional Information

We require that designs be creative and artistic. Designs of a commercial nature that contain blatant advertising of products or services will not be allowed. The designs, however, may relate to your organization in some relevant and creative manner. Please note that any designs deemed inappropriate or tasteless by our judges will not be approved.

The Artist Committee will choose local artists through a juried process based on the strength of the proposals. All pig art/designs must be submitted to the committee for final approval, and the Market Foundation must approve the final designs prior to production. All final pig designs and pigs are the property of Pike Place Market Foundation, but sponsors will be allowed to use their pig designs and photos of their pigs in promotional campaigns through October 30, 2001, or as negotiated in their sponsorship agreement.

With the exception of the $2,500 Pig Pal sponsorship, all sponsorships include a $1,000 artist honorarium. The $5,000 and $3,500 Pig Pal sponsors are asked to provide assistance with artist supplies in an amount not to exceed $500.
