Express your pride through art! This is the inaugural year of what will be an annual contest. The theme this year is #KeepDancingOrlando and we can’t wait to see what you create.
About the Contest
The winning art piece of this contest will be featured on the 2018 Come Out With Pride Poster and there will be a reception held to showcase the original pieces of the finalists and the winners. There will also be a “Peoples Choice” award for the art garnering the most love on social media.
How it Works
Submit a digital representation of your piece and if your art is chosen it will be featured by Come Out With Pride for online voting. We also will collect finalists original submissions for display throughout our Come Out With Pride events The Judging committee is made up of esteemed leaders in the Orlando Art community and the Come Out With Pride Board. Once the online voting results are in we will announce our winners. A $300.00 grant will be awarded to the winner of the poster contest and a $100.00 grant will be awarded to the People’s Choice award winner. One piece could win both.
A bank of finalists will be selected by our jury and made available for online viewing and voting by the public. The voting will be taken into account in selecting a grand prize winner. Additionally, we will be awarding a people’s choice winner.
