The Alpha Institute is pleased to announce limited edition International Reggae Poster Contest prints will be available to the public using Alpha’s online store. Proceeds will support Alpha’s educational and vocational programmes. The new “IRPC Limited Edition Alpha Prints” series of poster art is made possible by the International Reggae Poster Contest and its partners, Paperboy JA and VIP Attractions. The prints, which have been individually selected by Alpha from the amazing catalog of contest winners over the past six years, will be available for purchase on Alpha’s website and are printed size A3 (9.7 x 42.0cm, 11.69 x 16.53 inches), on fine art archival paper. Prints will ship internationally from Jamaica starting July 8. Images will initially focus on those that reference Alpha and its legacy. Prints will be available in the Alpha shop online (www.alphaboysschool.org/shop) and via March for Music Education shop (www.marchformusiceducation.org). Prints will rotate on a monthly basis in order to introduce new international artists and new ways of looking at music and the arts.
Since 2012, the IRPC has showcased and galvanized support for the 139-year old Alpha Institute’s social and cultural mission. Led by the Sisters of Mercy since 1890, Alpha’s work caring for the most vulnerable in society has been a major source of social welfare support in Jamaica. As an example of how music and the arts contribute to community-wide benefits particularly for the youth and the uneducated, The “IRPC Limited Edition Alpha Prints” means arts and culture fans around the world can engage directly with Alpha and be a part of the legacy. The initiative will also connect the public with IRPC graphic designers on Alpha’s website which will feature artist information and include links to artist portfolios.
