Bideawee invites artists grades 1-12 to participate in the organization’s 8th annual “Love Your Pet Art Contest & Expo.” All are encouraged to use their artistic talent to express their love for animals.
Students grades 1-8 can submit artwork representing any medium (drawings, paintings, sculptures, etc.). All artwork must be mailed or dropped off at the Adoption Center at Bideawee located at 118 Old Country Road, Westhampton, NY 11977 from 9am-5pm daily, before February 3, 2016.

The first 300 art entries from grades 1-8 will be displayed at Bideawee’s Art Expo for viewing by the public at select times from February 6th – 12th. Winners will be determined by public vote. A $5 donation will grant entrance into the show and help continue to care for the pets in need at Bideawee.
The online photography entries from grades 9-12 will be displayed at www.bideawee.org/loveyourpet from February 6th – 15th. All are invited to visit the website to vote for favorites.
