Carnation Parade Plate Design Contest Call for Art
The Carnation Parade Committee issues a call to all Colorado artists to compete in the first Carnation Parade Plate Design Contest.
Every year at the Wheat Ridge Carnation Parade our First Place winners are awarded a commemorative plate. The plate is decorated with a unique design from a local artist; this has been one of the traditions for the last 48 years. This year the Committee is pleased to announce a design competition!
The Committee is asking for local artist and designers to submit a copy of an original piece of art that reflects the theme of this year’s Parade.
- First Prize will have their art displayed on the 48th Carnation Parade first place award plates, plus $100 cash prize, 4 VIP seats at the Parade and the artwork showcased on the Festival publications. (Must be available for the presentation to the city)
- Second Prize is $50 and the artwork showcased on Festival publications.
- Third Prize is $25 and the artwork showcased on Festival publications.
- Honorable Mentions will be showcased on Festival publications.
All submissions will be displayed at the Carnation Festival Art Show (artists must supply easels)
