Calling all amateur artists within the City of Kawartha Lakes!

Kawartha Lakes Food Source (KLFS) is holding its first-ever art competition for their special occasion fundraising cards.

The 2018 Special Occasion Card Art Competition is open to all non-professional artists who are residents of the City of Kawartha Lakes. Creative individuals of all ages are encouraged to participate and all artwork submitted must be original artwork created by the contestant. Accepted mediums for the two-dimensional artwork include paintings of oil, acrylics or watercolours, or drawings using coloured pencil, pencil, ink, marker, pastels or charcoal. Original photographs are also welcome as submissions.

For its special occasion cards, KLFS is seeking artwork that is suitable and can be reproduced for the front cover of the cards – no dark backgrounds, collages, prints, mixed media or computer generated art will be accepted. As well, the images should be appropriate to the cause and image of the organization. Because for sets of cards will be produced, each submission must consist of four separate images of a consistent theme. For example, a native bird series theme was previously featured on the KLFS special occasion cards (2017). These bird images included the Red Pole, Cardinal and Wood Pecker.

The deadline to submit an entry is Monday, January 15, 2018. Judging will take place January 19, 2018 with the announcement of the winner on January 30, 2018. For further information and a copy of the competition rules, please contact Heather Kirby, General Manager, Kawartha Lakes Food Source at
