Cut it, Paint It, String It, Sew It, Mask It, Box It, Dress It, Bow it!

Alameda Artists and The Downtown Alameda Business Assoiciation invite all bay area artists to participate in this year’s Holiday Window Contest!

Important Artist Information
* Not all artists that submit will be selected. The amount of local artists selected will depend directly on the number of local shops participating.
* We will do our best to update and inform all artists that enter. Due to the high volume of entries it is not possible for us to contact every artist that enters. If you are wondering if you have been selected feel free to send out an additional inquiry.
* Artists work with a minimum $100.00 investment from the merchant.  Merchants may also have products and/or merchandise to incorporate as well as boxes of window display decorations.  Some merchants will have large window space display areas indoors, some will have an outdoor area.  Every merchant will be different.  It is your job to come up with the best and most creative solution for your window.
* Artist’s work directly with your merchant to come up with the theme and design. Some merchants may have a lot of feedback while others hand it completely over to you. Remember, every merchant will be different.  In the end it is the merchant’s store window and they will have the final say in the overall design.
* Artist’s must leave room in their window display for the voting sign which will be approximately 8.5″x5.5″.
