Connecticut's Historic Gardens POSTER CONTEST!
Connecticut’s Historic Gardens group celebrates its annual statewide Historic Gardens Day in June. Artists are invited to submit artwork to be considered for a poster that will advertise the twelfth annual event on June 28, 2015. The contest connects artists with the beauty of Connecticut’s historic homes and their gardens. Feel free to explore the gardens in this group for inspiration.
Entry for the 2015 Connecticut’s Historic Gardens Day Poster Artwork opens January 1, 2015 and closes January 23, 2015. The winning artwork will be selected by a jury of the Connecticut’s Historic Gardens Group and will be announced on February 2, 2015. The winning poster will be displayed in the Connecticut Historic Gardens booth at the Connecticut Flower Show in Hartford that runs February 19-22, 2015.
Eligibility: The contest is open to all Connecticut artists who work in oil, acrylic, or watercolor. Artists can submit up to three works of art. Please, no work should be previously published on the internet or other social media.
Rights: The winner will be awarded a prize of $250. The artist retains the right of ownership of the work of art, but allows Connecticut’s Historic Gardens Group the right to reproduce and distribute the image on a limited edition poster and other advertising materials to third parties.
