Artistic expression is a therapeutic way to process our feelings, creativity, and expand our understanding of a changing world. These expressions have the power to uplift and bring meaning to life during these challenging times.

Channel your creativity and produce an artwork exploring your experience of the covid-19 pandemic, and the shelter-in-place orders.

All experience levels welcome! No art supplies necessary. We encourage you to use what you have and have fun with it. You can use the camera in your phone, or cut up magazines, pencil and paper, cardboard and tape, or other found objects around you. Get creative with it.

1st place wins a $25 gift card.
2nd and 3rd runner up will each win a $10 gift card.

Submissions may include:

Fine and Graphic Arts
Sculpture (2′ x 3′ size max)

Poems and Writing (2 page limit, 12pt. font)

Judges will take into account the constraints that come with the nature of a virtual competition.
• Example: Video submissions will be based on the content of the film, not the production value.
• Example: Photo submissions will be judged on the artistic quality of the image, not the resolution of the JPG.

Winner will be chosen by ILRCSF staff.

One entry per person.
