Eagle Arts Contest: Love is in The Aerie Call for Submissions - all artists and ages welcomed

Tuesday, March 13 2018

Dear Gabriolans, The eagle nest monitors of Gabriola would like to invite you to participate in an “Eagle Arts’ project that will begin May 5 with a special event at the Golf Course. 

Our goal is to gather enough significant written and visual material to produce a book about the eagles of Gabriola, their nests, and their relationship with the local people. 

The contest will be evaluated from 3 perspectives. First, a jury will judge the entries for thematic content and artistic merit. Second, the peoples choice, will be voted on by attendees of “Love is in the Aerie”, May 5th , and third, selected work will be chosen by the editors for inclusion in the book project. We are offering great prizes for all ages to participate! 

Contest Details. 

Two age groups: Under 18 and 18 and over. Prizes to be announced.

Three categories

1. Poetry and Prose, anything goes if it is related to Gabriola eagles and their habitat, Maximum 2500 words. 

2. Photography - 8x10 photos ready for display. Our preference is for foam-board mounting, but framing is possible. 

3. Arts - any medium, painting, sculpture, fibre art, etc. Anything over 3 square feet, please contact re: display. 

Artists will be offered the option of selling their artwork at the May 5th event, with a donation of 20% of sale proceeds to the GROWLS eagle nest monitoring program.

There will also be a silent-auction fundraiser during the event, to be held from 12 to 5 pm. Donations would be greatly appreciated.
