Art Contest

Art Contest! { Local Artists, Anoka Area }

Hello December, hello snow storm that’s heading right for us, and hello ART CONTEST! We survived Small Business Saturday and Thanksgiving…and now we’re in the mood to have a little {more} fun. (As we’re working, like crazy, through all of the fantastic floral arrangements that we’re creating for the holidays, to deliver as gifts, to your friends and family, that is!) Anyway, we’ve decided that we would love some help decorating the shop, and, to do that, we decided to ask you for help. We need your art…AND, we’ll even hand out prizes for the best! Our contest it pretty basic…here are the rules and answers to frequently asked questions…


Favorite Christmas Memory

(We say Christmas because that’s what we happen to celebrate. We know that not everyone does and it’s our differences that make us really awesome! SO…if you don’t celebrate Christmas, show us your favorite memory of what YOU celebrate! Hanukkah, Yule, Kwanzaa, etc.; show us, we would LOVE to see!)


12 and under. 13 and over.



(Colored Pencil, Paints, Collage, Sculpture, Melted Crayon, etc.,get creative and have fun! Check Pinterest, Google it, or, just create…there is no wrong way to make art.)



(Abstract, Realistic, Surreal…again, get creative and have fun!)

Size Limit:


(We know that if you’re working with a sculpture, or something not so two dimensional, this can be difficult. Try your best to keep it this size, or smaller…we want to be able to display everything!)


Drop off anytime BEFORE December 21st. All art will be displayed in our shop.

(We will be having an open house ((that you will hear more about soon)) from the 9th-12th–this is a GREAT time to drop it off, as there will be plenty of people around to see your work. The OFFICIAL deadline is the 21st though. It is a firm deadline since judging will be the next day.)


Your name, age, and contact info.

(We need this to figure out what category to put you in, and to we can contact you if you win.)


There will be four prizes for both age groups.

1st: $75 Gift Card for your choice of Main Floral OR Sweet River.

2nd: $50 Gift Card of your choice, MF or SR.

3rd: $25 Gift Card of your choice, MF or SR.

Honorable Mention: $15 Gift Card for your choice, MF or SR.

(So, eight prizes total. All are gift certificates to either Main Floral, or Sweet River–you get to choose.)

Winners Announced:

December 22nd.

(Gift Certificates will be available for pickup, in Main Floral, on the 22nd. And, yes, you may absolutely use them for Christmas gifts, save them for Valentine’s Day, or just hang on to them for now! All art will also be available for you to pick back up, anytime after this date–if you’d like it back.)
