CALL FOR ENTRIES

“Weirton: The City Forged by Steel Art Competition” is an opportunity for artists to capture the massive steel mill that envelopes downtown Weirton. In June 2017 the bulk of the mill property was sold. By the end of the year, the BOP and blast furnace will be demolished to make way for new development.

This competition is being organized to honor the contribution that the mill made to the creation of the City of Weirton directly and to the growth of the nation through the steel products generated on site. Subject matter for all submitted works should be the former Weirton Steel mill in general and the BOP and/or blast furnace skyline in particular.

Registration is open until October 31, but artists will have through January 2018 to create their work. A juried exhibit will show from January-March 2018. Best of Show will win $500. First & second place prizes of $200 and $100 will be awarded in six categories. Artists will promptly receive a detailed entry packet including the prospectus and entry form, either via email or post, upon registration and payment.

For the $25 entry fee, each artist can enter up to two (2) works in 1) Oil; 2) Acrylic; 3) Watercolor and acrylic watercolor technique; 4) Pastels; 5) Drawing (charcoal, colored pencil, etc.); and 6) Mixed media and printmaking. Work must be original and created during the contest period.
