Traverse City Company Holds Nation Wide Art Contest

Story first appeared in the Traverse City Record-Eagle

An art contest sponsored by Traverse City-based banner company Britten Inc. will award cash prizes and offer a chance for artists to gain major exposure.
The contest, artUP, hopes to find great fine and digital art, photographs, graphics and logs. Contestants can submit entries, for a fee, starting this week through Dec. 28.

For some artists who participate in artUP, their art will literally go “up” in public places. Britten makes large banners and signs to display in malls, stadium, downtowns and other venues such as exhibit rentals. The contest will help Britten build an online Artist Marketplace full of art for customers to use on various projects.
There’s a lot of times that client would come to Britten and ask if they have any creative work, clip art or stock art.

Contest submissions will be pooled into a collection where clients can access and review the work for use in creative campaigns.
