The Machias Arts Council is offering a solution for the “winter doldrums” in its first-ever Snow and Ice Sculpture Contest, running January 3 through March 1. Applicants of all ages who are residents of Washington County may participate with up to two entries per contestant.
To participate, when snow falls, entrants create their own original snow and/or ice sculpture in their yard, take a high quality color photo of their sculpture and submit one photo only of it to the Machias Arts Council by March 1 to MACSnowSculpture@gmail.com. Contestants are to also include with their photo entry their full name, age (if under 18), home address, email address, phone number and date their sculpture was created. Entrants under the age of 18 must include parent or guardian name, their contact information and permission. By entering, contestants grant permission for their photo and name to be published in all forms, royalty-free. Contest results will be announced by the Machias Arts Council by March 10, 2023 on Machias Arts Council and Instagram.com/MachiasArts.
