Contest open to Mission artists of all ages

Registration open until Oct. 4; judging will occur Nov. 23

An art contest open to Mission residents will net the winner $1,500 cash.

Registration for the Growing Up in Mission contest is open until Oct. 4, and encourages you to submit your artwork to the local Prospera Credit Union branch between Nov. 16-23. Done in conjunction with the Mission Arts Council, the competition wants local artists to share what they love best about Mission through whichever artistic medium they choose.

Registration forms are available at the Mission Prospera branch and the Mission Arts Council, or via prospera.ca or missionartscouncil.ca. There is a $5 entrance fee and proceeds go to the arts council.

Judging will occur Nov. 23, and winners will be announced Nov. 29 at a gala event.
