Picture Love art and photography contest

 

How do you visualize love and healing? Is it a serene morning landscape? An abstract painting that lets the mind wander to a safe space? Or maybe an energizing spray of flowers in the colours of a sunset?

 

The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) believes in that vision. We believe in our community. We believe that people can heal. Most of all, we believe in a world free of sexualized violence. To celebrate this vision and our upcoming gala, We Believe: The Art of Healing, we would like to invite you to enter our Picture Love art contest. From March 20, 2017 to May 15, 2017, SACE will be accepting images of family friendly art and photography.

 

Winners will be picked by random draw and announced through our social media platforms. They will also have the option of having their art sold at the silent auction at the upcoming gala.
