Half Moon Bay

Dublin Library’s T.A.G. is hosting a teen art contest, as part of Alameda County Library’s partnership with the Alameda County Arts Commission, during the month of March. The contest is open to teens ages 13-19 years, who reside in Dublin, Pleasanton, or San Ramon. Each student may submit 1-2 completed artworks, and the 2D pieces must be no more than 9″x 12″ when completed. Entry forms and complete rules can be obtained at the Dublin Library. Stop by the Information Desk to turn in artwork.

Art work may be entered into the contest under one of three categories: digital art/graphic design, photography, and fine art. Each category will have one winner, selected by the community (votes will be tallied after the voting closes on April 2nd). In addition to the three winners, a panel of three Bay Area artists will select one art work as a best in show piece. Each of the four winners will receive a gift card to a local art store, and a winner’s certificate for the contest.
