(Note: There are about a dozen art submissions already (some very good). Go ahead, submit your design now, winner gets $1,000. (it’s ok to submit more than one)
Submit Your Design (we do all the rest).
Local artists, this is just in time to help bring a merrier Christmas, an art contest to paint the roof of the Coahoma County Airport hangar. Submit your design and win $1,000. Contest ends December 15th, and the winner will be announced immediately.
The roof is bigger than a football field, but your design is all that matters to you (contractors will do the actual painting of your art on the roof). And remember, whatever you design is going to be seen from the air. The winning design will be easy to see from way up, and it will also become artwork that people will want to have the helps make Clarksdale and the Mississippi Delta stand out even more.
Think about it like this, we want your art to be so good, and so distinguishable that aircraft will go out of their way to come look at it (think circling airplanes so stacked we’ll need an air traffic controller). And we want pilots, passengers and junior birdmen to take pictures of your design and share it constantly in social media (and soon enough Google Earth will pick it up too).
Design rules: it’s really easy, submit your design by email, or send your design by snail mail; it’s all good. And remember, keep it simple; your art needs to be seen… from 20,000 feet above. Email Hangar@ClarksdaleNews.com for more information, send your art digitally there, or get the USPS address to submit your art that’s not digital, of course.
The following images show you the right scale for your art, and will help you plan your masterpiece, and remember, it’s a contest… that pays well right before the holidays.
