Why:

To celebrate & honor the connection of mother & child through art & community awareness.

What:

The art contest participants will be divided into two groups: Adults (18+) & Adolescents. Each group has a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place prize category, that includes either cash prizes or art supply gift packages. All art submitted must meet the following criteria:

  • Must highlight the relationship between mother & child
  • Artist’s are encouraged to include breastfeeding/ chest feeding &/or nature imagery
  • Any medium can be used, but pieces should be kept to a reasonable size. *Sculptures will be limited to a max of 36 x 36 & drawings/paintings will be limited to a max of 24 x 30.
  • Must be artist’s own image & own art
  • Only one submission per artist
How:

Interested artists must submit an entrance form (can we build this into the page where it collects name, address, age, art medium going to be used & way to pay entrance fee?) & pay a contest entrance fee: $10 for adolescents & $20 for adults. Entries must be received no later than one week prior to showing.

Additional Information:

Art submitted will need to be brought by artist to event 1-2 hrs before event start time. Winning artists will be photographed with their piece, given time to speak about their art at the event & will be spotlighted in the coalition’s blog. All artists are welcome to sell their piece to interested community members at the event, agreeing that 15% of sales go back to the Coalition to use towards event costs & artist prizes.
