Art and Photography Contest Welcomes Student Submissions

Feb 12, 2020 10:22AM ● By DigMB Staff
Students, it's that time of year: The Neptunian Woman's Club of Manhattan Beach is now accepting submissions for its 41st annual art and photography contest.

The contest is open to Manhattan Beach students from kindergarten through 12th grade. Submissions are due by February 28.

There will be cash prizes for the winners: first place: $50; second place: $40; and third place:  $30.

Students in grades K-5 may submit crayon, markers, pencil, paint, watercolor, or charcoal artwork. Students in grades 6-12 may submit all of the above, plus matted photography. Only original artwork will be accepted - no class projects. Each student may submit a maximum of two entries.

Entry forms are available at all school offices, or online here: K-5 Submission Form and Grade 6-12 Submission Form.

The winning artwork will be on display at an arts show and awards ceremony on March 15 at 1:00 p.m. at the Neptunian Woman's Club clubhouse.

The contest is now in its 41st year. Established in 1978 by NWC member Elizabeth Dorsey, the first “Art Tea” vision was an opportunity to recognize student artists from kindergarten through 12th grade. Now a longstanding tradition in Manhattan Beach, the contest aims to showcase up-and-coming artistic talent in the local community.

The Neptunian Woman’s Club, founded in 1909, is the oldest civic organization in the South Bay. It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to volunteerism and the raising of funds in support of charitable, educational, cultural and civic services.
