LEAF Inc. is looking for a few “striking images” that dramatize the growth of problem gambling in Otsego County.
Whoever does so stands to win a $1,000 first prize, $500 second or $250 third.
The LEAF Fine Art Contest – the theme, “Gambling, a Risky Business” – will award prizes in two categories, adults and 18 and under.
The winning images will be used in a campaign to educate the public in avoiding gambling addiction, according to Carol Mandigo, the LEAF community educator in charge of the project.
The artwork may be figurative or abstract, 2D or 3D and in any medium. The deadline to enter is April 1, and a show of the artwork is planned for May.
For more information, contact Mandigo at LEAF, Inc., 80 Water St., Oneonta, NY 13820. Call 432-0090 ext. 106, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Contest details may also be found on Facebook under LEAF Art Contest.
