Bideawee’s 12th Annual “Love Your Pet Art Contest & Expo”
January 9 - February 2Free
Bideawee, one of the country’s oldest and most respected animal welfare and pet adoption organizations, is calling all Long Island student-artists and pet lovers to participate in the 12th annual “Love Your Pet Art Contest & Expo.” Exciting prizes are awarded and winners are selected by public vote!
The much-anticipated annual event gives budding artists, grades 1 – 12, the chance to demonstrate their artistic ability and memorialize their love for their pets in many mediums including drawings, sculpture and photography. Last year, hundreds of pieces of artwork were submitted.
Younger students in grades 1 – 8 are invited to submit artwork in any medium – drawings, paintings, sculpture or photography. The first 300 entries will be on display in February at Bideawee’s Westhampton Adoption Center.
Older students, grades 9 – 12, are asked to submit photography for Bideawee’s online “Love Your Pet Art Contest & Expo.” The photography submissions can be viewed on Bideawee’s website in February.
Prizes will be awarded in February in five groupings based on children’s grade year in school: 1st & 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 5th & 6th, 7th & 8th and 9th -12th. Winning students from each group receive gift cards from Target, Splish Splash, Tanger Outlets, Dave & Busters, Long Island Aquarium and more.
