Artwork submissions deadline for Earth Matters art competition extended
Okanagan College Media Release

The Okanagan College Earth Matters event, an environmental art competition and symposium, has been rescheduled to the fall.

New and experienced Okanagan artists can submit their artwork by October 20, 2015. A symposium and award event recognizing the winning art pieces will follow in mid-November. 

The artistic event aims to highlight the correlation between intellect and creative expression in the natural and social sciences. 

Artists can participate in two categories: secondary school students in Grades 10 to 12 and a second category for any adults age 18 and older. The art entries must reflect on one of the four themes—biodiversity, water resources, waste, climate change – which will be the focus of the academic symposium.

Prizes for the winner in each category include a $500 tuition bursary for the secondary school division, and the adult open category winners will receive a one-day workshop with internationally acclaimed nature artist Terry Isaac at his studio in Penticton.

Details about the symposium, and winning entries will be made available in the fall. For more information about the Earth Matters competition, including artwork submission guidelines, please visit www.okanagan.bc.ca/earthmatters.
