Camas Needs Artists!

The Downtown Camas Association needs the help of local artists to create images for promotional items that will reflect the character of downtown Camas. Selected pieces will be used on items such as bags, t-shirts, banners, mugs, cards, and also in conjunction with online and print promotions. Artists—both adults and kids—can submit colorful artwork depicting one of three different themes: a downtown Camas streetscape, the Camas car show, or the Camas Farmer’s Market. Multiple entries are permitted, and submissions are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 31. There is no entry fee or cost to participate.

In addition to being showcased on promotional items that will be given to visiting dignitaries, to welcome new businesses, and for sale at events, each participating artist whose work is chosen will receive recognition on DCA social media, in the downtown weekly newsletter, on the DCA website, and in a press release to local media. The artist will also receive two promotional items that the art is used on.

Here’s how to enter: high-resolution (300 dpi) .jpg or .pdf images must be submitted by email to Art can be originally created on computer or on paper, no smaller than ten inches by ten inches. The email must include the name, age, postal address, phone number, and email address of the entrant in addition to a brief, two-sentence statement about the art. All submitted work must be original and not based on any pre-existing design. All entries will become the sole property of the Downtown Camas Association and may be used at the Downtown Camas Association’s discretion on its web site, social media, print materials, and promotional items.
