Submissions Closed For 2018

Sticker Design Contest

The Electric Forest sticker is a piece of art worth a thousand words, a trip to Rothbury, and all the memories that were made there. Design the official sticker for Electric Forest – and have your art spark stories for years to come!

New for 2018, Electric Forest, Grassroots California, and Conscious Alliance collaborate to invite the artistically inclined to design an official sticker for Electric Forest.

This community is one which connects on a spiritual level to the Earth’s creatures, and we let those connections guide us through life’s forests, fields, and streams. Design a sticker that epitomizes this community – the herd of Forest Family adventuring, protecting, and discovering new possibilities.” – Grassroots California
