Design a Concert Poster for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' Abu Dhabi Gig

Grammy-winning music dup Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are set to play at Yas Island’s island’s Du Arena on Friday, 25 April. If you’re an artist or graphic designer – or simply fancy using your creative talents – come up with your design for the ultimate gig poster and submit it to the judges sharpish.

The Same Love stars will personally choose the winning artwork and sign and frame a copy for its creator to keep. They’ll be joined on the night by UK grime pioneer Wiley, whose 17-year career has seen him storm charts around the world.

Macklemore’s music career started in 2000 with the release of his Open Your Eyes EP. Ten years later, in 2010, he teamed up with producer Ryan Lewis, and they released their first album, The Heist, in 2012 – its lead single, Thrift Shop, climbed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with sales of more than 6 million downloads. Their innovation and independent approach go against much of hip-hop’s typical commercialism and swagger, and the design should suit the duo’s trademark image.
