Climate Art Competition Announced
HEAL Utah launches local art contest

Tuesday, March 24, Salt Lake City, UT – Today, the Healthy Environment Alliance of Utah (HEAL Utah) launched the Climate Art Competition, an open call for environmentally themed designs.

The Utah-based environmental nonprofit HEAL Utah is in search of a design to print on limited edition shirts. Designs can range from the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day to a call for federal climate action, and everything in between. The organization’s goal is to draw attention to important environmental topics in an inspirational, interactive way.

“Art can bring people together, even when we are all distant in these uncertain times,” said HEAL Utah’s Grassroots Organizer, Carmen ValDez. “We wanted to offer a creative activity for our community that would show how you can still be involved in activism, even at home.” 

HEAL Utah’s staff will pick the top designs but public, online voting will decide the final t-shirt design.

The winner will receive recognition and a small cash prize.

Art must be submitted by 11:59 PM on April 8, 2020. Further information can be found on HEAL Utah’s Climate Art Competition submission form: https://forms.gle/6S2a2atFKuyt5BjW7.
