AHS HOLDS COLORING BOOK COVER CONTEST
ANIMAL LOVERS with an artistic flair are invited to put their talents to the test by entering their design idea for the Associated Humane Society/Popcorn Park’s upcoming new coloring book.
Along with having their design adorn the front cover of the coloring book Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park Zoo Presents: Our Animal Friends, the winning artist in the coloring book cover contest will receive $500.
The 128-page coloring book, planned for publication later this year, includes art work designed over the years by many AHS supporters, along with photos of many of the animals who make their homes at Popcorn Park Zoo. The book will be sold as a fundraiser for AHS.
“Several years ago we solicited art work from AHS supporters and friends for a smaller coloring book and were overwhelmed with so many beautiful submittals. We are now working on a larger coloring and activity book and hope to include many more of those creative pieces,” said Roseann Trezza, Executive Director, Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park. “It seems only fitting that with so many personal works of art on the inside, that we grace the cover with a full-color design on the cover as well,” she said.
Entrants must submit their work on an 8 ˝ by 11 sheet of white paper or paperboard. The picture must be in full-color and must reflect our mission to care for and protect all animals.
A panel of judges will review the entries and select the one that most conveys the coloring book theme of all the animals that are helped by Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park.
Entries must be received no later than September 30, 2007. Please include your name, address, telephone number and email address (if applicable) on the back of your entry. To have your entry returned, please send a self-addressed stamped envelope with your entry.
Entries can be mailed to: Coloring Book Contest, Roseann Trezza, Executive Director, Associated Humane Societies, 124 Evergreen Ave., Newark, NJ 07114. For more information, please e-mail us.
