The State Botanical Garden of Georgia is pleased to announce their 2010 Art Competition is now open to all Georgia students 9th grade and above. This competition, funded by The J.A. and H.G. Woodruff, Jr. Charitable Trust, celebrates student talent while producing artwork for signature items in the Garden Gift Shop. Your winning design may win up to $1,000.00, plus be used to decorate journals, scarves, travel mugs, and unique gift items. Don’t hesitate to enter – the judges may contact Certificate of Merit winners to purchase their designs.
What are we looking for? Keep in mind, a goal is to create items for our garden gift shop. Previous winners have included pen & ink, paintings, photography and computer enhanced graphics, usually with a botanical, animal or insect subject or an abstract design. Flora and fauna found in the botanical garden or in Georgia is encouraged. One color designs are welcome. The design must be two dimensional. The artwork does not need to be framed but should be signed. For more information, refer to the complete guidelines found at http://www.uga.edu/botgarden/documents/events/artcomp.pdf or call Connie Cottingham at 706-542-6014.
