Horicon Bank Announces Art Contest

(Horicon) Horicon Bank has announced the launch of a new contest.  The Take Flight art contest is open to all artists and features a top prize of $2000.  Fred C. Schwertfeger, Senior VP of Marketing at Horicon Bank, says they are “asking artist to submit work that reflects excellence and originality in capturing the concept of Wings.”  The theme is an ode to the bank’s logo and the deep ties the bank has to the Horicon Marsh.  A committee of judges will be looking for submissions to evoke the feeling and emotion of flight.  Prizes include a $2000 grand prize, a $100 People’s Choice Award and $500 for the Young Artist Award to be given to one entrant between 5 and 18 years old.  Submissions will be due no later than Wednesday April 22nd 2020.  Those wishing to submit their art can do so by uploading a digital image to www.horiconflights.com.  All images will be reviewed by the judges, with a group of finalists being selected to be sent into the final round popular vote.
