We had more than 40 entries this year,” said Nancy Arcand, executive director of the Mission Art Council. “I also want to thank Prospera Credit Union for partnering with us once again to provide this fantastic opportunity for local artists of all ages … It is through partnerships like this one that we are able to expand and improve our Mission Arts Centre programs and services, particularly our youth and gallery programs.”

A showing of all the artwork from the contest is currently on display at the Rock Family Gallery at the Mission Arts Centre until Nov. 29.
