The Nevada County Fairgrounds is sponsoring a contest to find the best artwork to illustrate the 2015 Nevada County Fair theme – “Catch the Fair Bug!” – featuring bugs and insects. If you’re a talented artist, and you’d like $250, this is the contest to enter!
The contest, which is open to Nevada County residents only, takes place now through Friday, January 30. If you submit the winning artwork, you will win $250 and a 2015 Nevada County Fair package that includes admission tickets, parking and carnival coupons. Additionally, the winning artwork will be used on various Fair promotional pieces, print ads, buttons, banners, posters, and flyers.
Interested artists may use any medium, including photos, and can submit up to three entries, which must be on 8-1/2 by 11-inch paper. Entries can be delivered to the Fairgrounds Office at 11228 McCourtney Road or mailed to the Fair Office at PO Box 2687, Grass Valley, CA 95945. There is a drop box available for those who wish to leave their artwork at the office after hours or on weekends. A complete set of rules can be found here or by calling the Fair Office at (530) 273-6217.
Debbie Marshall of Cedar Ridge submitted the theme of “Catch the Fair Bug.” The theme was chosen from the more than 240 theme names submitted during our community contest to determine the theme for the 2015 Nevada County Fair. The 2015 Nevada County Fair is August 12 – 16, 2015.
