The 2020 South Carolina Office of Rural Health Art Competition is open, and wants to hear from #SCartists.

Each year, they solicit artwork (all visual art forms + photography) from artists living in South Carolina for consideration as the official imagery for 1) South Carolina’s Annual Rural Health Conference (this year’s, the 24th such gathering, is scheduled for Sept. 1-3, 2020 in Greenville) and 2) National Rural Health Day (the 10th of which is Nov. 19, 2020).

This year, they’re encouraging artists to celebrate the beauty of the rural Upstate with their submissions. Just make sure rural and South Carolina are the focus.

Participants must complete the form on their website and submit artwork on or before 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2020.
