CALLS FOR ART 
CALL FOR NIAGARA FALLS T-SHIRT ART SUBMISSIONS
$750 1st Prize!!! Call Ends June 15, 2019 
Calling all Artists! Niagara Falls Culture is searching for artwork/design ideas -illustrations, graphics, or other art- to fit on a standard size t-shirt.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Any bold, fun artistic image that is your interpretation of Niagara Falls. We are looking for art imagery that is uniquely Niagara Falls, something that is instantly recognizable to locals. Think Floral Clock, People Movers, historical attractions, Maple Leaf Village. Avoid classic stereotypes, or create a completely new take on them. The words “Niagara Falls” are not necessary unless integral to the design.

The Niagara Falls Camera Club
The Niagara Falls Camera Club had a fantastic year with Top 5 finishes in both the Golden Horseshoe and McKellar competitions.  We also had many members recognized with honorable mentions in both of those competitions, and our very own Scott Simons finished First in the Digital Nature Salon at the recent CanAm Photo Expo. Way to go everyone!
 
Image by Niagara Falls' Scott Simons: "This shot is probably the most winningest "Bug on a Stick" shots I have ever taken. Niagara Falls Camera Club Digital Image of the year, Rainbow competition "Best in Show" digital and CanAm Photo Expo digital Nature salon competition 1st place. Yes, I am quite proud of this image."
