$1000 Jubilee Award

This year’s overarching theme “Celebrating a Moment” has the option for artists to choose a subject which captures an aspect of Ocean Shores history.

Choosing this topic as the subject of the artwork will make it eligible for the $1000 Jubilee Award, to be judged by the Ocean Shores Jubilee Committee. The work will also be eligible for all other awards.

To assist artists who wish to create a work with a historical subject, the website has a new link to a vast archive of historical images.
