World Lemur Festival Juried Art Exhibition now is over!
The Lemur Conservation Foundation holds a juried art contest, international competition in connection with our World Lemur Festival calling all artists, both professional and amateur, from any country to submit works depicting lemurs.
Lemur Conservation Foundation (LCF) is now accepting submissions by artists who create works depicting lemurs.
The exhibition will be restricted to visual art mediums. This exhibition opportunity is open to all local, national, and international artists, professional and amateur, ages 14+.
Photographs of your original 2D and 3D art will be showcased in a digital exhibition. All works will be accepted for consideration, and the jury will select a portion of entries for the online exhibition on their website and social media platforms. Only the top two winning pieces (as determined by the jury) will be required to ship their original art to LCF's Myakka City reserve in Florida, United States.
Lemur biology, ecology, and/or conservation must be the central theme of the art submission. Contestants may only submit one, original piece for the exhibition.
Grand prize winners (first place, runner up, and community favorite) will be required to ship the original, winning art piece to the Lemur Conservation Foundation in Myakka City, Florida, the United States upon notification by the jury.
