Calling all artists! Creatives among the Inland Valley are being requested to submit their best artwork to be entered in Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley’s annual Holiday Ornament Contest.
Each year, artists submit their work in hopes of winning the grand prize – their artwork and name on the annual commemorative ornament. While the contest highlights a winner and runner up, every entry will be displayed in some way – the Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley website, holiday card and/or Christmas Tree Lane event at the Promenade Temecula.
Contest coordinator Elizabeth Hamerschlag reminisces, “Every year, local artists submit their work, and we are consistently blown away by the level of talent that resides right here in the Inland Valley.” Those looking to showcase their skills and help a good cause will find the Holiday Ornament Contest to be a great fit. Requirements include submission of a small- to medium-sized canvas, preferably 5” x 7” or smaller inspired by the theme of this year’s event, “Home for the Holidays.”
“We chose ‘Home for the Holidays’ as the inspiration for the contest to tie into our mission to improve living conditions for families in our community,” states Tammy Marine, Chief Executive Officer of Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley.
Contestants can mail or hand-deliver their submission to the Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley headquarters located at 41615 Winchester Road, Suite 214, Temecula 92591. While the grand prize winner will have their work prominently displayed during the Christmas Tree Lane event, the runner up will be featured on the Habitat holiday card. All entries must be submitted by Monday, Sept. 21.
