Art subject: Entry
must be inspired by a native blooming Appalachian wildflower from the contest checklist. If a background is included in the piece, it should be
representative of the plant’s natural habitat (local forest, river edge, or
field) and in the appropriate blooming season. Multiple plants may be
incorporated into the piece, but all blooms included must be from the contest
list. The blossom should be the focal point of the piece, though appropriate
wildlife from the same habitat may be included in the art. It is inappropriate
for contest entries to include wildflowers in a pot, picked bouquets, flowers
on a bridge or roadway, or with domestic animals.
Medium: All entries must be an
original work of art. Entry may be of any medium type (pencil, ink, acrylic,
oil, glass, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, clay, paper, wood, etc.). Computer
generated art or photography will NOT be accepted as art entry medium.
Size: two-dimensional art size 8” x 10” ONLY (portrait or landscape in orientation) OR three-dimensional art sized between 4” and 18” square. Do NOT frame or mat art.
