Alianait and the Nunavut Arts & Crafts Association are calling on all artists to submit an artwork to be used for promotional material for both the 2013 Alianait Arts Festival and the Nunavut Arts Festival!

This year, the theme of the festivals will be Enchanted Owl.

Here’s how it works:

The contest is open to Nunavut residents of all ages.

Any form of art is eligible, including jewellery, painting, drawing and carving. The design should reflect the theme "Enchanted Owl." You can upload an image of your submission here.

Best of all, the winning artwork will be digitized and used as a logo for both festivals on shirts, brochures, posters, etc. This is your chance to have YOUR art seen all over Iqaluit and the world!

The public will then vote to pick their favourite out of the three top submissions online. Make sure you check back soon to find out more about how you can vote for your favourite. 

All submissions must be received by Friday April 5th.
