Friday, January 7, 2020 is the deadline to enter and submit artwork for the 37th Annual California Strawberry Festival Artwork Contest. The artist with the winning strawberry-themed design will receive $2,000 and VIP tickets to the festival, which takes place May 16 and 17 at Strawberry Meadows of College Park (3250 South Rose Avenue) in Oxnard.
Entries will be evaluated by a judging panel looking for creativity and the best use of a strawberry design.
The winning design may be used in advertising and printed on collectible T-shirts and various promotional items.
Artists can submit their designs in a variety of mediums–digital, oils, watercolors, inks, pencil, photograph and mixed media. Entries must be 16-1/2 inches wide by 17 inches high. Artwork should be photographed or scanned and submitted through the festival website or mailed or hand-delivered to the festival office (1661 Pacific Avenue #15, Oxnard, CA 93033). There is no fee to enter.
The winner will be notified by the second week of February and will be the guest of honor at a March luncheon in Oxnard when the design will be revealed to media, dignitaries, and festival sponsors. Hand-delivered or mailed submissions will not be returned and must be picked up from the festival office any time between February 20-28, 2020. The winning original design and all rights of the winning design will become the property of the California Strawberry Festival.
