If you’re around the Gananoque area next month and are looking to exercise your creative muscles, then we’ve got a contest that you should definitely check out.
Pam Staple, town and cultural coordinator for Gananoque, recently invited all local artists, designers, illustrators, and pretty much anyone with a creative flair to come up with a design for themed street banners.
The new banners will be placed on lamp posts along King Street. Submitted artworks must of course be original, as well as specifically designed for the contest. The four banners must feature a theme that represents life in the Gananoque community. Designs must “speak” of water, the arts, our heritage, and our historical downtown district.
Designs and artwork can be submitted for consideration through a CD as a high-resolution JPG file. Artists and designers are requested to include all necessary information along with CD like name, address, and the like.
And if your artwork is chosen, you get to receive a gift certificate worth $500 from Wallacks Art Store
Not only do you stand a chance to win great prizes, you’re also helping Gananoque out. So what’re you waiting for? Get your creative juices flowing and design something for the community!
