Calling All Artists – Cirque du Soleil Pin Design Contest

Cirque du Soleil AXEL is calling all Worcester County creatives to design a custom enamel pin inspired by their new fantastical show!

Calling All Artists – Cirque du Soleil Pin Design Contest

They call them “Pinheads.”

Collectors of pins that is. Some pins are just simple, wordy statements; like, “NOPE!” Others are intricate works of art and quirky expressions of their wise creator. And whether or not you’re a collector, or like to buy them randomly as mementos, simply put: they’re wearable statements you can take anywhere, to show everyone, a favorite moment in time or a tiny glimpse into who you are.

Here at the DCU Center, we’re massive supporters of our local artists and self-expression. That’s why we’re very excited to announce our custom pin contest to all Worcester County artists in partnership with Cirque du Soleil’s brilliant—and legendary—creative team.

Worcester County, and in particular, the City of Worcester, is home to a lively and vibrant art scene, filled with enough artistic talent to make this wildly unique and creative competition something to get excited about.


Here’s the deal: all Worcester County creatives should submit an inspired, custom design for a pin to by Sunday, November 3 at 11:59pm. 


And get this! The winner will have 4,000 copies of their exclusive pin produced and distributed to various partners! Just think, a monetary prize and a WHOLE LOT of visibility could await you! This is BIG!

So, Worcester County, are you ready to get creative and stick a pin in this competition?
