2020 Community Directory Cover Art Contest!

2017 Directory cover

2020 is an election year. Also in 2020, DNCA will publish a new Dunwoody North Community Directory {Register or Login to your DNCA account to update your information today}. 2020 also means, we are holding the 2nd Official Cover Art Contest!

This is a chance for kids younger than sixteen to showcase their creation on the directory cover for the next three years. The main requirements: the drawing should depict something of importance to the artist about Dunwoody North, the artwork should be in color and it should be made vertically to fill the directory front cover.

The Dunwoody North Civic Association Beautification Committee will nominate a maximum of seven drawings and post them on the DNCA website, DunwoodyNorth.org. Everyone registered on the site will be able to view and vote for their favorite - 1 vote per registered member. The most favored artwork will go on the front cover. Unless there is a dramatic space issue, all four of the highest voted entries will be included inside the directory.

The four top submissions to the first contest held in 2016 can be viewed on page 10 of the 2017 directory. Eleven-year-old Emily Grant said about her winning entry: “I drew this after school one day, and when my mom told me about the art contest, I decided the picture was a good representation of our neighborhood. There are lots of great families, beautiful trees, and nice pets (especially my guinea pig, Pedro). I’m glad you liked my drawing!”

The rules are simple:

  • Artists must be Dunwoody North residents younger than 16 years old. {No help from parents, older siblings, friends, etc.}
  • The artwork should depict something of importance to the artist about Dunwoody North.
  • Creations should be approximately 8.5” x 11” and must be flat enough to be scanned.
  • The piece should be formatted vertically to best fit the directory cover.
  • All tools and materials can be used as long as the result is in color and can be scanned.
  • Submissions may be signed on the front if desired. For identification, please print the artists first and last name on the back edge of the piece. (Avoid disturbing the art on the front as much as possible)
  • Please include artists full name, birthday, parent/guardian’s name and contact information on a separate piece of paper and include it with the submission.
  • When preparing the submission for delivery, do not fold or otherwise reduce the size of or damage the visible area.

Contest entries must be received by Sunday November 3, 2019. For questions regarding the contest and submission details please see the newsletter or contact our Beautification Committee.

Voting will be held in mid-November; results posted in December.
