Artists Get Paid to Sketch: Call to Artists Salt Lake City

Are you passionate about the outdoors? We're looking for two talented artists to join us in Salt Lake City, Utah for Outdoor Retailer's Summer Market. Each chosen artist will be a part of our live OR art project—an exciting, fast-paced session of inspiration and sketching. All proceeds from the event will go to the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA). All you need to do is send us a link to your portfolio or a sample of your work (original compositions only please) by July 2, 2010!

We're setting up two lucky artists with an all-expenses paid trip to Outdoor Retailer's Summer Market, where outdoor equipment retailers, manufacturers, and industry professionals come together to showcase and discover the latest in outdoor apparel and gear. We'll fly you out to Salt Lake City for two days between August 2 and August 4, 2010, where we'll put your talents to the test.

Not only will you get to hang with the Hi-Tec team, but we'll outfit you in the latest and greatest Hi-Tec gear, and hook you up with $300 each day for your time and talent.

Interested artists should submit a link to their portfolio or two artwork samples, and tell us how they are inspired by the outdoors. There are three easy ways to enter:

Send a tweet to @HiTecUSA – be sure to use the hashtag #ArtforParks

The Hi-Tec team will select the top 10 entries based on not only creativity and originality, but also whether the artist emulates a passion for the outdoors. The top 10 artists will be chosen on July 6, 2010, and contacted for a Skype interview to be held on July 7, 2010. The top two artists will be finalized and announced by 4 p.m. PST on July 7, 2010.
