Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Design Competition


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.

So how do you enter? It’s as easy as this:

  1. CHOOSE THEME or IDEA – The strongest designs always start from a simple idea!
  2. GET CREATIVE – Visualize your idea, and let the craziness begin.
  3. GUIDELINES – These are simple and straightforward. You can download them to the right.
  4. SUBMISSION – Make sure to submit your submission form along with your design. You can access them to the right.
  • Submit your design to the following email:
  • Submission deadline: April 12 (11:59 pm).
  • Only one submission will be accepted so submit your best design.


Full information on the poster specifications can be found at along with submission rules and regulations.

So for all you budding artists out there, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have your artwork recognised by some of the world’s biggest artists so what are you waiting for?! Yalla!!
