Pumpkin Art Contest – Deadline August 31

The Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival has launched a nation-wide art contest to find the perfect poster for the 2007 festival.

“The contest will open up a universe of creative possibilities,” said Cameron Palmer, chair of the Half Moon Bay Beautification Committee.

Not only that, but now the Coastal Arts League (CAL) can play a more integral role in the festival.

In the past, CAL hasn’t played much of a role in the event. “This is a marriage of two nonprofits,” said Shirley Kellicutt, CAL member and the person who came up with the idea for the poster. “We’re putting art into the Art & Pumpkin Festival.”

The winner of the contest will receive $1,000 and their work will be used for the 2007 festival and promotional material. A second place prize of $500, third place prize of $250 and fourth and fifth place prizes of $125 each, will also be awarded.

Kellicut advices that entries should have these four key characteristics:

  • Be something that everyone can identify with,
  • Have broad appeal,
  • Capture the “orange orb essence” of the festival, and
  • Be applicable to a variety of uses beyond a poster, such as T-shirts, wine glasses, etc.

In addition, she advise, “be prepared for lots of personal recognition,” if you win the contest.
