Tennessee Craft Week Instagram Contest

June 25, 2020

You're invited to participate in the Tennessee Craft Week Instagram Photo Contest, June 1- June 30, 2020. This contest is open to all craft artists in the state of Tennessee. Winning photos will credit the artist (and photographer, if noted). Photos will be shared via Tennessee Craft social media platforms and in print to generate excitement and public interest in Tennessee Craft Week (TCW), held October 2-11, 2020.

Artists are invited to take a photo of their craft in a nature-based or pastoral landscape setting. This landscape should reflect the geographical beauty of Tennessee’s distinctive regions while bringing an additional focus of artisan work made in Tennessee.

Winning photos will be announced to the public on Thursday, July 9. The Grand Prize winner will receive a gift card for dinner for two at a local Nashville restaurant and a stay at the luxurious, art-filled 21c Museum Hotel in downtown Nashville. Second and Third place winners will be awarded gift certificates from Jerry’s Artarama, Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff, Blick Art Materials, and Plaza Art. All winning photos and Honorable Mention photos will be used to promote the 2020 Tennessee Craft Week, which celebrates fine craft. Awards will be distributed on October 15.
