Eco Arts Awards Accepting Entries through January 15, 2013

Eco Arts Awards

The Eco Arts Awards, an annual competition to honor artistic expressions for ecology, is accepting entries now through January 15, 2013. If you’re the grand prize winner, you’ll score $2,000 for your craftily repurposed creation.

The Eco Arts Awards offers prizes in six categories, including that of Repurposed Materials in Art and Design. Although the entry fee is a whopping $30 per entry, the prizes consist of a total of $12,500, split between six third place winners, six second place winners, six first place winners, and one grand prize winner.

Included in the judging criteria for the categories are specifications for eco-friendly materials, when relevant. For instance, the Fine Arts category includes a preference for recycled, repurposed, and/or non-toxic materials.

Need some inspiration? Check out the list of 2012 Eco Arts Awards winners, which include upcycled wine bottles, refrigerators, and signage, and then get started on your own masterpiece!

About the Author

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now. Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
