AWF Art Contest – Open Now to September 30

Animal Welfare Friends is inviting those 18 and under to submit their drawings or paintings that show the happiness that dogs and/or cats bring to our art contest! The winner’s art will be featured as the 2021 Animal Welfare Friends art print and displayed at the AWF shelter, on AWF’s website, and AWF’s 2021 stationary. The winner will also receive $25 and an Animal Welfare Friends t-shirt.

Artwork should be done on 8 1⁄2” x 11” paper (standard letter/printer paper size). Entries must be submitted by September 30, and can be scanned & emailed with the entry form to or dropped off with the entry form at the shelter (22407 Business Highway 151, Monticello, Iowa 52310). Please to not mail entries, as we do not want there to be folds in the artwork. Only one entry per individual. Entries will be judged on originality and execution of dog and or cat theme by an independent judge. Relatives of AWF employees and board members are not eligible to participate.
