Creative MontCo is pleased to announce an innovative competition, sponsored by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, PECO, and The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. for area artists, nonprofits, community organizations, businesses, and inspired individuals that live, work, or serve Montgomery County to redesign a classic newspaper honor box and turn it into public art.
The competition kicks off now, and entry applications can be submitted until February 21, 2014. Applicants can enter the competition free-of-charge – the only costs beings the supplies used for the competition. Better yet, all entries are set to be on display at this year’s Norristown Arts Hill Festival, scheduled for May 3, 2014 – during which they’ll be judged by a local panel (and the crowd attending the festival) who will award prizes to the top contenders.
Interested? Submit our online application and get the guidelines here to start the process to get an honor box. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and all applicants will be notified of their status by February 28, 2014. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone’s submissions!
