Artists in the Parks contest seeks entries


Beaverton Arts Commission issues call for artists

The Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District and Beaverton Arts Commission issued a call to artists for a new competition called the “2013 THPRD Artists in the Parks Contest.”

The contest is open to all artists residing within park district boundaries. The boundary map is available at thprd.org and rolling your mouse over “Am I In-district?” on the left margin and then choosing “Boundary Map” from the drop-down menu.

Visual artists are invited to submit their two-dimensional artwork to be considered for use on the cover of the park district’s seasonal activities guides. Only artwork depicting elements from a THPRD park or facility will be considered.

Activities guides are created three times per year in the summer, fall and winter/spring. These guides list all programs, events and activities the park district offers each term. 

“This is a sensational opportunity for local artists to receive increased exposure of their artworks,” said Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle.

Submission guidelines:

  • Enter submissions at callforentry.org.

  • Call Title: 2013 THPRD Artists in the Parks Contest.

  • Deadline to apply: Monday, July 29, by 11 p.m.

  • Artists may submit up to four works for consideration.

  • All 2D medias are acceptable (photography, watercolor, oils, acrylics, prints, drawings, collage, digital art, etc.).

  • Artists should consider submitting work that is reflective of the seasons represented with each activities guide. For the winter/spring guide, priority will be given to participants whose artwork incorporates both seasons within a single image.

  • Activities guides are portrait-oriented and are 8 inches wide by 11 inches high.

    “We know there are many talented artists living within our boundaries,” said Doug Menke, THPRD general manager. “We look forward to seeing the work they produce and showcasing the best.”
