Hayner calls for contest entries

Fashion design, art competitions open

TROY — The Troy-Hayner Cultural Center, 301 W. Main St., Troy, has issued calls for entries for two competitions in conjunction with the Art’s Alive at the Hayner Festival scheduled for Aug. 4.

The Runway URway Fashion Design Competition is open to anyone 10 and older. The design categories include Duct Tape, Period Piece, Cosplay, Casual Wear, Formal Wear and Recyclable.

Cash prizes for first-, second-, third-place and honorable mentions will be awarded in every category. One People’s Choice Best of Show cash prize of $250 will be determined during the Art’s Alive at the Hayner Festival.

Entry forms must be received by July 6. Each competitor will have two opportunities to walk the runway at the Hayner Center. A three-judge panel will score each piece, July 13 at 6:30 p.m., and awards will be announced at the Runway URway Show at 5 p.m., Aug. 4.

High school students, adult and professional artists in Miami, Montgomery, Darke, Clark, Champaign, Shelby and Green counties can enter a community art competition and share their art at the festival. The exhibition will take place outdoors in the Hayner Courtyard.

The artwork of the winners will remain at the Hayner through Sept. 30 as part of the Art’s Alive at the Hayner Invitational Exhibition. Cash prizes will be awarded in each of the three categories: $200 for first place, $150 for second and $100 for third. Honorable Mentions will also be recognized.

All two and three-dimensional media, except photography, are acceptable. The total size for each work is limited to 36 inches in any direction. The subject matter is open, but should be appropriate for general audiences including children. Pieces should be delivered and picked up on the day of the show, Aug. 4. However, there is an advance entry form that is due by Aug. 1.

Prospectuses outlining additional requirements and entry forms are available at the Hayner Center or online at www.troyhayner.org.
