Visual Arts Contest

Deadline Oct 15

In 2018, AFSC is celebrating 80 years of serving Alberta producers, and we are committed to continuing this relationship for many years to come. To commemorate our 80 years in business, AFSC would like to see how rural youth interpret the theme of "Then and Now: Agriculture in Alberta" through their preferred, two-dimensional visual arts medium. Your art will help AFSC celebrate 80 years of serving producers, as well as highlight the longstanding agriculture industry in Alberta.

The Visual Arts Contest is open to all youth in Alberta ages 4-17. The age categories for the Visual Arts Contest will be as follows: 4-6 years; 7-9 years; 10-12 years; and 13-17 years. Given AFSC’s strong partnership with 4-H Alberta, anyone who is a current, active, Alberta-resident member of 4-H is especially encouraged to enter the Visual Arts Contest. Artwork must be child’s original work. There is no entry fee.

The winner in each age category will receive a $100 Visa gift card. The honourable mention runners-up in each age category will receive a $50 Visa gift card. The total value of the prizes available across all age categories is therefore $800 (4x$100 + 8x$50). The odds of winning a prize is determined by: (i) the quality of the contestant’s submission as described in the section entitled “Evaluation Criteria”; and (ii) the number of entries received in a particular age category.

Applicants (and their guardians) must also complete the official entry form along with their submission.
