What:  Chesapeake Conservancy Holiday Card contest
Deadline:  October 8
Entry form:  click here

We have been invited to provide the art for the Chesapeake Conservancy Holiday Card. This year’s contest is only open to AWC members. We will need submissions no later than October 8th. 

The Chesapeake Conservancy staff will judge the pieces and determine the winner. The card will be printed and mailed to close to 500 people. So, this is great exposure for the winning artist. The Conservancy will include a quotation from you about your piece on the back of the card, plus your website and/ or contact information if you wish. Simply fill out the attached form and email your art entry in jpeg format to Christina Fiedler, at . You may also simply provide the info in the body of your email entry without returning the form.

The winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card and one free ticket to their Fifth Annual Champions of the Chesapeake Event, held this year on November 1st at Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, DC. 

 Headquartered in Annapolis, the Conservancy believes that the Chesapeake is a national treasure that should be accessible for everyone and a place where wildlife can thrive. They support the quality of conservation, and help build parks, trails and public access sites. This is our opportunity to help them do that through our art.
