This contest is completely Free and open to everybody!
Multiple Prizes,
Multiple Submissions
are allowed,
and the possibility to win more than 1 prize per person!

As you may know, the big Atlanta Coral and Aquatics Expo is just around the corner (September 19th, mark your calendars!). And you can help to make some awesome decorations that will be on display at the show!

Big, or Small...
Bright Colors, Neon, or Glow-in-the-Dark...
Posters and Murals, or 3D coral models...
....We need your help to make some amazing decoration!

You may post photos of your submissions here! But the photos are just for everyone's enjoyment. The "Most Awesome" grand prize winners will be chosen after comparing all the art in-person.
Afterwards, we will gather all submitted artwork together at the ARC storage facility, and make the "Most Awesome" selections and post them here!

Deadline for submission: TBD, but we can leave this open so you all have tons of time until the expo

For Shopping Ideas:
I know that the Dollar Store has a lot of bright Neon Posterboard (2 for $1), styrofoam shapes, and art supplies... and I'm sure walmart would have even more!
Whatever you would like to donate to ARC, we will be happy to accept. And if you wish to keep your artwork afterwords, just let us know, that's cool too.

For Inspiration:
Check out Aquashella Reefing Conventions on YouTube. They have some amazing decoration, and we hope to simulate the low-light environment so that Actinic and UV lights will fluoresce a room full of bright corals!

I’m unaware as to anything on Facebook, but will confirm. Regardless, we will be making an official expo post soon with updates.

Will you be extending the deadline for this if the expo is rescheduled? Crossing my fingers that I'll have time to make some things eventually!

Yes, thank you @lizzyann.

This will remain open for people to showcase their artwork! Hopefully, in the spring, we will have plenty of cool art pieces for decoration!

haha, and I’m the same way! You better believe I’m going to make some arts!
