So you must have heard by now that award-winning Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are headed to Yas Island this month! And to celebrate FLASH Entertainment recently announced a unique and exclusive competition for UAE artists and graphic designers which will see them battle it out to design the ultimate gig poster for Grammy award-winning Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ show on Friday, 25 April at the du Arena, Yas Island.
One lucky winner will see their design personally selected by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis who will then sign and frame a copy for the artist to keep! Entering the competition is simple. Participants will be required to design an A2 poster which fits the distinctive style of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, artists who have built a huge following for their innovation, ideas and lyrics that go against much of hip-hop’s traditional swagger.
