Last year’s winner was Peter Crow, “When I was a child, there were always people around who were interested in making or talking about art,” said Peter about how he came to use art as expression. Crow is a painter, has his studio in Pontiac, and his winning work of art was created using oil on canvas.

Artists under the age of 18 are required to have a legal guardian sign the entry card. All work must be ready for display; hanging artwork should be properly framed. Artists may contact the PCAC for additional submission guidelines.

The deadline to enter is 4:00 p.m. on July 29. Entry cards, with name and contact information (address, phone, email) must accompany each work of art. A non-refundable $20 fee is required for every three works of art. Current PCAC members receive a discount and may submit 1-3 works of art for a $10 fee.
