Then you simply go to our website, enter the color you’ve created and if we and the artist community like it, we’ll sell it at Jerry’s Artarama and send you and one friend on a trip of a lifetime to Australia!”
All entries will be accepted from January 9th, 2014 through March 30th, 2014. Entries will be judged from April 4th- 18th, 2014 by the Facebook fan community and separate panels of judges. Top 20 finalists will be announced April 20th, which will be judged by a separate panel of professional artists and top five finalists will be announced April 23rd.
