2014 Button Design Contest Winner Announced

First Night is excited to announce the button design winner for the 2014 event which is themed "Art Along the River." This year's button design comes from a local Council Bluffs resident Bill Harm. His design will be used to create buttons that will serve as tickets of admission for participants in the seventh annual First Night Council Bluffs activities, which will take December 31, 2013. The design, which is unique to each year, will also be used for other event promotion, including posters, fliers, commercials, and the First Night website.

"With all that has been happening along the riverfront we that this year's theme should incorporate the river and we felt Bill's button captured the excitement and entertainment that happens every year at our event," said First Night Co-Chair Inky Westfall. "Art in Iowa come from all over including music, painting, dancing and we feel this his button are our event capture all those things that make Iowa a special place to live, work, and play." "The button design is integral to the development of First Night," said Co-Chair Geoff Hubbard. "It becomes the brand everyone associates with the event, and has a tremendous amount of visibility."
