GUELPH TRANSIT ART CONTEST

Andra Arnold and the Here to Help Team, Guelph’s real estate experts, are proud to support local artists, help them expand their reach and gain new audiences. What better way to showcase your work than to have it travel around the city in a moving, year-long installation? 

 

Artists are invited to submit their artwork or photography to the 2nd Annual Guelph Transit Art Contest. The winner will have their piece featured on the back of a Guelph Transit bus for a full year, starting in January 2022. 

The only requirement is that the art submitted is something that will bring a smile to someone’s day.

 

Submissions will be open for a two-week period, from October 27 to November 10.

 

Once all submissions have been received, the Here to Help team will choose a number of finalists. They will then share the work of these talented finalists on their Instagram page and the public will vote for a winner from November 12 to 26. The artist or photographer who gets the most votes/comments wins!

 

Last year’s winner was a stunning sunset shot that showcased Guelph’s historic architecture and beauty, by talented local photographer Jeff Mumford. 

This is an exciting, not-to-be-missed opportunity for local artists and photographers, so don’t be shy—share your work! Let’s work together to support local artists and the arts scene in Guelph. 

Submit your artwork or photography by November 10 to REALTOR® Andra Arnold at [email protected]
