The City of Laguna Beach Holiday Palette Competition is a project of the Arts Commission. Winning artists are provided with a 4’ x 3’ wooden palette on which to paint original artwork. The completed palettes are temporary and displayed on lampposts throughout the city during the winter holiday season when and where the City desires for up to 7 years or based on its condition.
The City of Laguna Beach Arts Commission will judge the designs based on creativity and appropriateness.
Honorarium $700 for each completed and returned palette.
Entries will be accepted from artists who reside, work or exhibit in Laguna Beach and are 18 years of age or older.
- Please submit a palette design to the scale of 8½ x 11” in color (as a .jpeg, .png, or .pdf file at 150-300 dpi, if emailed) within the border of a palette outline. The design must have a horizontal orientation. Please include the palette indent as integral to your design. Also understand that if your design is selected you might be required to reverse the indent and your design. All judging will be done anonymously; please do not sign the front of your submitted design. You may submit one (1) design. Designs must be hand drawn or painted. No digitally generated imagery will be accepted.
- If your design is selected, you will be provided with a 4’ x 3’ wooden palette with a primed surface ready to paint. You will be required to paint your approved design on one side with oil, acrylic, or another material that can withstand outdoor exposure. Remember that palettes will be viewed from a distance. There are no restrictions on the subject matter; however, religious symbols are discouraged.
