Oil Springs is looking for an artistic way to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the village.
It’s asking local artists and photographers to submit entries for a poster contest. Officials say the artwork, whether a photo or a painting, should depict some aspect of the founding of the oil industry in Oil Springs. They’re also asking it be a vertical colour image to fit an 11×14 poster.
The artwork, which becomes the property of the village, will be used as it promotes the anniversary of the founding of the community. The first place prize is $300, second $200 and third $100.
Artist have until May 30 at 5pm to enter. Release forms can be found on the village’s website at www.oilsprings.ca.
