Bealls Florida, a family-owned retailer with 73 department stores in Florida, is looking for its next artist. Contestants are invited to submit their work for a chance to win $5,000 and the opportunity to have their art produced on a line of Florida-inspired products.
"The Next Bealls Florida Artist Competition is for artists who are passionate about the Florida lifestyle and culture that Bealls Florida stores represent," they write on their website. "Bealls is looking for artists whose artwork reflects Floridian culture and coastal living."
Entries may be submitted through July 10 at TheNextBeallsFloridaArtist.com and five finalists will be selected within two weeks after that. The finalists will present their artwork to a panel of Bealls executives, who will select the grand prize winner.
