Calling Illustrators to Create Coloring Contest Pages

Coloring Contest Pages will be used for Betty Danger’s “Oh, for Cute!” Coloring Contest held during Art-A-Whirl® presented by NEMAA

Illustrators and Artists may submit 1 design that represents their vision of the N.E. Minneapolis Art-A-Whirl celebration, neighborhoods, or landmarks. How cool! Betty Danger’s Country Club  will choose multiple designs that will be used for Bettys “Oh, for Cute! Coloring Contest” for the duration of Art-A-Whirl Weekend.

The chosen designs will be on display for the masses to interact with and view all weekend long. Chosen coloring sheets will also have a ton of visibility on all of Betty Danger’s social media platforms. Coloring page designs should be appropriate for all ages, not just little humans but full grown ones, too.

Please create and submit a line drawing similar but not limited to a coloring book design you grew up with. Must be line drawings and duplicatable. Please submit a PDF file on Designs must fit a standard 8 ½ x 11 copy paper size. Artists are encouraged to include their name and social media handle on the design. Notification of artworks selected for coloring pages will be on May 5. Artists chosen will provide Betty with an image to be photocopied or digitally copied out.

I understand by submitting to the coloring pages contest my design may be chosen and I won’t win a prize but will gain a lot of visibility. Therefore, Betty Danger Country Club may use my coloring design forever for little kids and full grown kids to color on Betty Danger’s Country Club.
