Climate Smart Glacier Country announces art contest

Print Article

Climate Smart Glacier Country is hosting its first-ever art contest with submissions being taken this month.

The theme is “Climate Smart Art,” with the intent to have submissions that capture the spirit of sustainability and climate preparedness in the community.

Submissions to the art contest can be, according to a release, photos of forest adventuring, a short film about local organic farmers, or piles of snow carved into the shape of a wind turbine, or anything that depicts what Climate Smart means to the artist.

The art contest will serve as a companion to the unveiling of the city of Whitefish Climate Action Plan At-A-Glance document, a way to raise community awareness around climate issues and to allow artists and scientists to learn from each other. The winners of the art contest will be announced during the Winter Carnival on Feb. 2.

Contest entries will be split into several categories for judging: Photography and graphic design; video (3 to 20 minutes long); mixed media; and designated entries to the Whitefish Winter Carnival’s snow sculpture event.

There will also be a separate youth winner for all three categories, focusing on work from elementary, middle and high schoolers.

To enter, follow Climate Smart Glacier Country on Facebook and Instagram, tag Climate Smart in photos of the work with #climatesmartart, or submit files to https://climatesmartglaciercountry.org/2018/10/29/2018-csgc-art-contest/. The deadline to submit is Jan. 27.

To enter the snow sculpture event visit, http://www.cityofwhitefish.org/Snow%20Sculpture%20Showcase%20-%20Application%202019%20Fillable%20Form.pdf

The winners will be selected by a panel of community artists, art teachers and scientists. Awards and prizes will be presented at the Whitefish Performing Arts Center at 5 p.m. on Feb. 2 during the Climate Smart Art Expo following the Winter Carnival’s Grand Parade. The Art Expo will display the work of all the winners and will be accompanied by a free showing of the winning video entries followed by the short film “Depth Perception,” which focuses on the intersection of snowboarding and nature.

The Climate Smart Art Contest is sponsored by the city of Whitefish and Climate Smart Glacier Country.
