Call for Submissions: Art of Sustainability Contest
The Pioneer Valley Sustainability Network is calling on Pioneer Valley artists and inventors to submit their ideas and concepts for a project that will result in a representation of sustainability. Ideas can be described visually (through sketches, models, sculpture, video, etc.) and verbally. This first stage of the contest involves only concepts, not finished artwork or productions.
The goal of this contest is to stimulate thought and action on sustainability in the Pioneer Valley. Submissions, in the form of ideas, are due by June 20. The winning artist/inventor will receive a $1,000 prize and will also receive funding of up to $5,000 to create his or her idea, with significant exposure and recognition for all finalists.For details about criteria, eligibility, and other contest rules and guidelines, visit the Pioneer Valley Sustainability Network website at www.pvsustain.com or call Catherine Miller, Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, at (413) 781-6045.
