We’re having an art contest and we want you to enter! We’ve wanted to make and Ellie and Edmond calendar for the last couple of years, but have never actually done it. This is where we want you! We’re looking for your Ellie and Edmond art to make into a calendar for 2015! Here are the rules:

  • You can use any medium you like; paint, pastels, crayons, oils, fabric, etc… You just have to be able to scan in your final product.
  • All entries must be sent by Jpeg or PDF and must be emailed to us at ellandedmond@gmail.com.
  • Contest is open to all ages.
  • All art must include us, you may use one of our pictures from the blog or Facebook or Twitter as your inspiration or you can come up with and original idea of us. Remember, we are conservationist and adventurers so think of a fun setting for us.
  • An independent judge will pick the 12 finalist.
  • Contest ends Aug. 30th, 2014. Winners will be announced Sept. 5th, 2014.
  • The 12 winners will receive a calender as their prize and an Ellie and Edmond magnet!

We’ll have a limited numbers of calenders to purchase in the late fall. All proceeds from the calendar sales will go to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an organization that helps raise orphans elephants in Africa! So get those creative juices flowing and pull out those paint brushes! It’s time to create some great art and help orphan elephants too!
