13th annual Merrill Christmas Card Art Contest
The Merrill Area Chamber of Commerce is thinking Christmas already and is in search of an artist to create their 13th annual Merrill Christmas card.
The 13th annual Merrill Christmas Card Art Contest is open for entries, and the winning artist will have their artwork featured and printed on the 13th annual Merrill Christmas card, copies of which will be sold during the upcoming 2023 Christmas season.
Contest entries must depict a Merrill Christmas scene, past or present, and may be created using any of the following two-dimensional mediums: acrylic, pen and ink, watercolor or oil. Each contestant may submit one entry and that entry should be 12” X 18” in overall dimension. All submissions must be an original work of art.
Contest entries are due by Sept. 20, 2023. Judges will select one image which captures the essence and spirit of the Christmas season in Merrill. The winner will receive a $150 Merrill Chamber gift certificate and have their artwork featured on the 2023 Christmas card and used in future promotions.
Submitted artwork becomes the property of the Merrill Area Chamber of Commerce and may be used in various promotional displays.
