THEME

Conjunto Music – Traditional music born in South Texas whose main instruments include the button accordion, bajo sexto, bass and drums. All the instruments do not need to be represented in the artwork but keep in mind that we are looking for a colorful, creative interpretation of Conjunto music.

Tips: Research images of past Conjunto festivals online or on the Festival’s Facebook page. Note that Conjunto music does not include ballet folklorico dancers, flamenco skirts, or mariachis. Entries featuring an incorrect musical genre will be disqualified. Attention to detail is highly encouraged particularly when it comes to fashion including hats, boots, jeans, and shoes. View other winning entries found on this page to ensure your entry does not resemble a previous winner’s imagery.
