Calling All Artists! “Cute as a . . .” design challenge is back!

December 30, 2011

Confederation Centre Art Gallery is planning its 5th Annual Button Design Challenge (Charlottetown, PE, December 15, 2011) - The Confederation Centre Art Gallery is looking for artists to design buttons for the \"Cute as a...\" button event to be held March 8, 2012. Artists are encouraged to submit their designs by January 31, 2012.

Kevin Rice, Art Gallery Director says, \"Participants have often commented how much fun they have trading these cool button designs with friends at the Gallery.\"
All entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges, with 30 designs selected for reproduction. All artwork must be original and free of copyright restrictions. All artists must be willing to allow the Confederation Centre Art Gallery to reproduce their artwork.

By submitting to \"Cute as a...\", the artist grants the Confederation Centre Art Gallery the right to use the image for publicity, display and sale, as a one inch button. Publicity includes our website and any fair public use related to \"Cute as a...\" including the sale of buttons at the event or future events, and in promotional publications.

Please visit us online at for submission guidelines. All questions should be directed to BJ McCarville at

During the button event selected designs will be exhibited, and each ticket holder will get to draw five buttons from the \"Cute as a...\" collection to be traded amongst the guests throughout the evening.
