The Entry Deadline Countdown Begins | Enter the Pastel 100 Today!

Miles to Go

When Kansas artist Elaine Lierly Jones entered her pastel landscape, Miles to Go (pastel, 24×36) in last year’s competition, she didn’t know she’d be the winner of the Pastel Journal Grand Prize.

Right now millions of students are counting down the final days of summer vacation, but if you’re a pastel painter, there’s another important countdown happening right now: the entry deadline for the 15th Annual Pastel 100 Competition!

There are only 2 days left to take advantage of the Early Bird deadline. If you enter your entry/entries by 11:59 pm on Thursday, August 15, the fee is $20 per entry. The regular deadline is 11:59 pm on August 30, and the fee goes up to $25. So, make today the day you enter!

Who knows? You may be the next recipient of the Pastel Journal Grand Prize Award. And if so, you’ll be getting a call from me some time in October to let you know. I’ll be very excited to share the news with you. Maybe you should be giving some thought to how you might spend that $5,000?
