“Boat the Blue” Antique & Classic Boat Show looking for Teen Digital Artists

Port Huron, MI — Local teens are asked to participate in a digital art contest with cash prizes. The Port Huron “Boat the Blue” Antique & Classic Boat Show is looking for digital artwork to be used in their promotions for the 2020 Annual Boat Show.

The submissions should be in digital format and must be original. Ipad painting, mixed media, photography and other digital forms from applications like Adobe and others are recommended. The work should feature the words “Boat the Blue” and promote the Blue Water area and the boating heritage in the region.

The contest is open to artists between the ages of 13 and 19. There are cash prizes for the winning submissions. First place is $300; second place is $200; and third place gets $100.

Artwork needs to be submitted by August 1st to atorello@mimutual.com. Winning designs will be selected by a Board of Judges and will be displayed in Downtown Port Huron businesses before and during the Boat Show.

This year’s antique boat show will be held September 12. In 2018, the biennial show offered over 700 free boat rides. The 2020 show will have judging based on restoration of the antique boats.
