For the month of April, Oregon Wild is running an art contest for artists up to 18 years old! This is a great way to spend some time while social distancing, and with the possibility of winning some great prizes. Our efforts to keep our communities healthy and safe may mean we're not spending as much quality time in nature as we'd like to. What better substitute than creating art and sharing it with the world! Winners will also be featured at our annual Call of the Wild gala!
Entering is simple!
- Find the prompt for your age category below.
- Make an awesome piece of art
- Take a photo or video of the art.
The artist can be pictured with the art, or it can be an image of just the art.
Photos must be at least 1 MB but no larger than 10 MBs.
- Fill out the form below.
After submitting, you will be taken to an option to upload or email your art.
- [optional] post on social media and tag us @OregonWild using #ORWildArt
Winners will be notified on May 11th. See the sidebar for guidelines.
|Up to 5||Coloring contest (download the page here)||$50|
|6-8||Draw one of Oregon's native species. Check out our wildlife profiles for ideas.||$50|
|9-11||Oregon has some weird wildlife - giant salamanders, fish that cross the street, and jumping slugs - but what about wildlife that COULD be in Oregon? Create your own Oregon native wildlife and tell us what is special about it and why it loves Oregon.||$50|
|12-13||What is your favorite place outdoors? Beach? Mountains? Rivers? Desert? Make a landscape featuring the plants and animals of your favorite landscape.||$100|
|14-16||Keeping nature in balance requires many relationships. For example, beavers create dams, making a home for trout. Otters eat sea urchins, allowing kelp to grow. Wolves help keep elk from overeating certain plants near riverbanks. Create a piece of art that illustrates a relationship that helps keep balance in nature.||$150|
|17-18||What does 'wild' mean to you in this time of stress and uncertainty? Why is it important? Create a piece of art that embodies your answer.||$150|
