The Pollinator Partnership (P2) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization-- the
largest organization in the world dedicated to the protection and promotion
of pollinators and their ecosystems. Birds, bats, bees, butterflies,
beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for
bringing us one out of every three bites of food. They also sustain our
ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce.
Unfortunately they are in trouble. Some species have seen a 90% decline in
their populations over the last decade.  Without the actions of pollinators,
agricultural economies, our food supply, and surrounding landscapes would

Our Solution for Sustainability
Pollinator Partnership addresses issues of pollinator health and decline
using many resources and projects. We are dealing with a complex issue that
does not have a simple solution, but by addressing each area where
pollinators interface with people we can make a significant impact in
pollinator, ecosystem, and human health.  One way we address this issue is
through outreach and education.

Each year, the Pollinator Partnership, along with a wide range of partners
(including federal agencies, non-profits, for-profits, individuals, etc.)
design and distribute an educational pollinator poster.  About 200,000
posters are distributed throughout the United States each year. They are one
of the most popular outreach material items offered and are distributed for
the cost of shipping and handling.

P2 is seeking an artist for the 2015 pollinator poster. The theme of the
2015 pollinator poster is carnivorous plants of North America and their

Each year's poster is unique in size and content, and the posters are
enjoyed and used in a wide variety of venues from classrooms, fairs,
conferences, and offices, to homes and educational trainings.

Poster Image - Vision

plants and their pollinators. Some plant examples include venus flytrap,
sundew, pitcher plants, and cobra lily. Find additional examples here

The poster is aimed at a wide-audience, including adults and children.  A
scientific/naturalistic style is preferred.  The P2 staff will work with the
artist on scientific accuracy and detail.

Poster Size
There is flexibility with the size of the poster, but past posters have
ranged from 30 in x 12 in to 30 in x 32 in (including a galley at the bottom
of the poster for partner logos).  We suggest using a standard poster size
so that the poster may easily be framed.

The Pollinator Partnership does not make any profit off of the poster and
distributes them for free (not including shipping and handling).  P2 works
to create the poster each year to help educate the public about the
importance of pollinators.  The chosen artist will receive $1,000 upon
completion of the artwork and agreement and signature of contracted work for
the 2015 poster.

The Pollinator Partnership will own the rights to the final submitted
digital artwork.
