Enter Your Art in our Fourth Annual Caregiving Art Show

Hope_Pegi Pegi created this piece during our Caregiving Art Show contest, which helps us prepare for our Fourth Annual Caregiving Art Show.

Our Fourth Annual Caregiving Art Show, which will feature the art of family caregivers and carees, will take place September 7 through September 13. Proceeds from our Caregiving Art Show will help support our CareGifters program and Caregiving.com. Beginning today, you can enter your artwork for the show via the form below. The deadline to enter your art is September 5.

Here’s how it works: Any current family caregiver, former family caregiver and caree can submit photos of their art (whatever art you enjoy, including paintings, sketches, cake decorating, sculptures, photographs, woodworking, handwork). A family caregiver is anyone providing care to a family member or is affected by a caregiving situation in his or her family. A former family caregiver provided care to a family member. A caree is anyone receiving help from a family member.

We’ll display the art from September 7 until September 13 in an art show that will be featured on Caregiving.com. During the art show, visitors will vote for their favorite art. Based on visitors’ ratings, we’ll award a cash prize to the art which receives the most votes in three different categories:

1. Family caregivers and carees ages 8 through 11; first-place prize is $30;

2. Family caregivers and carees ages 12 through 16; first-place prize is $50;

3. Family caregivers and carees ages 17 and above; first-place prize is $50.

You can enter as many pieces as you’d like; the entry fee for each piece is $25 in the adult category, $10 in the two children categories. The artist also has a choice of listing his or her art for sale. When you submit your art, we’ll ask for information about your caregiving situation (for whom do you care or from whom do you receive care) and whether you’d like to make your art available for sale.

Anyone participating in our Caregiving Art Show contest for 10 of our 13 weeks can submit art for our show free of charge. If you qualify, look for an email from me at the end of our contest.

Beginning today, you can submit your entry via the form below. Please submit a separate form for each artwork you plan to submit (i.e., you'll submit three forms and pay three entry fees if you want to enter three pieces of art). You can enter as many pieces as you'd like. The deadline to enter your art is September 5.

(Please note: Our Caregiving Art Show is a work in progress. We may adjust some guidelines as we go along to make it easier for our artists, our art show visitors, and/or me. We’ll keep you posted. And, if you'd like to a sponsor of this year's Art Show, please send me an email for details.)
