We were thrilled to receive an unprecedented number of entries for our 2011 contests. For our children’s art contest, we received 520 entries from 20 countries around the world! We’ve been so inspired by the imagination and creativity of the paintings, drawings, sculptures, and photographs we’ve received. Our photo contests also received 60+ images and amazing shots!
Right before the deadline we received several hundred more entries. We downloaded, sized, and labeled each piece of art. We did get all the entries into the galleries, but we feel we need more time to go carefully through each piece of art and photograph.
To that end, we have postponed announcing the winners of both contests until January 5th, 2012.
In the meantime, please check that your child’s artwork or your photographs are in the galleries. If you don’t see your entry there, let us know right away. By clicking on the left and right arrows, you will easily see all the entries or can pop a slideshow. The artwork and photography will be permanent “exhibits” on our site.
Also, if you would like to receive a free Frogs Are Green wristband for entering the contest, please be sure we have your address and verify the exact number of wristbands you need (if, for example, you are a teacher and sent in multiple entries from a school). Please put “wristband” in the subject line. (Note: we will use your address for this purpose only and won’t save it.)
We have created a 2012 Kids’ Art Calendar from the winning artwork from last year and would like to create one for 2013 during next year, so also let us know if we have permission use your child’s artwork. If you’d like to purchase the calendar or any of our Frogs Are Green products, that would sure help us pay for all those wristbands and postage! Proceeds go to environmental and amphibian conservation organizations. Thank you so much for making this year’s contests so exciting, we’re so happy to know you care.
Also, if you’d like to get involved, let us know what interests you and how you wish to help. Feel free to email us with your ideas! Sign up for our monthly email in the sidebar to the right and receive our FREE poster download of a red-eyed tree frog!
