National Design Competition Ends Soon

October 1 is the deadline for submitting entries for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada’s (ELCIC) design competition. The ELCIC is seeking submissions for gifts that may be presented on behalf of the ELCIC to global and ecumenical guests. The gifts may be of any kind but must be inexpensive to replicate. Since the gifts may be packaged for overseas distribution, artists are encouraged to be mindful of weight and fragility. Options include, but are not limited to, crosses, calligraphy, icons, and lithographs.

Specifications: Designs may not be larger than 12 inches in height or width and 1 inch thick.

Eligibility: Artists must be members of the ELCIC and may submit only one entry.

Deadline: Participants must submit a photo (digital photos are acceptable) or slide of the entry by October 1, 2008. Finalists will be asked to submit original works of art at a later date.

Submit your entry to: ELCIC Design Contest, 302-393 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3B 3H6.
