Are you an artist who loves liberty – or do you know an artist who does? If so, encourage them to take part in our first ever Libertopia Art Contest! We’re looking for artwork of any kind – 2D or 3D illustrations, traditional or digital, paintings, photos of sculptures, posters, cartoons, text art and more (if you need a little inspiration, feel free to look over some of our own cartoons here at Libertopia!). Even people who may not think they’re artists are encouraged to send in a sketch! The point is to use your creativity and imagination to develop a piece of artwork – from a simple sketch on a napkin, to a spectacular mural – to help bring a visual message of Liberty and Hope to people everywhere.
So why participate? This is a great opportunity to get a little recognition and appreciation for your talent, and bragging rights as a winner in one of the few Libertarian Art contests out there! Plus, it’s a fun way to network with other Libertarian artists – as well as develop some great liberty-themed art to display in your portfolio or through social media.
The details: Please send one entry per applicant – a jpeg under 400K would be excellent. The art must be your work. Any age may contribute! Please send your name, age category (child or adult) e-mail address, web address (if you have an online portfolio), and a brief description of your work (Note: The child category is for kids 13 and under). Please keep artwork clean without profanity, and pertaining to a Libertarian / Liberty theme. Please send to silverlake37 (at) outlook (dot) com.
All art submissions will be exhibited under an “Artist Page” here on Libertopia. The cutoff date for entries will be May 15 (Friday). On May 16, we’ll announce the first, second and third place winners in each of the two categories through a blog post. We’ll also have special award icons that will be displayed with the winning art on Libertopia, as well as e-mailed to you for use on your portfolio sites. All art will remain on display under the Artist Page for as long as this site is up and running. However, all artwork ultimately belongs to the artist – so if you decide you’d like it removed sometime down the road, we can do that.
We’re looking forward to seeing your artwork soon!
