Advancing the Status of Women Worldwide
SHATTER THE SILENCE is the overall theme of the 2021 Zonta of Cheyenne Art Exhibition and Contest. Entries are being sought from Wyoming artists for this year’s virtual art contest to raise awareness of human trafficking, domestic/gender violence, and child marriage in the state of Wyoming. Art in any of the following medium is welcome: 2D contemporary, 3D sculpture, digital art, or photography. Entries must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 7, 2021.
Each entry must visually illustrate one or more of the following atrocities of which Zonta seeks to raise awareness:
– Human Trafficking
– Domestic/Gender Violence

Additionally, a brief artist’s statement is required to accompany each piece. It will become a short audio recording as part of the curation of the on-line art gallery to be created from the art submissions.
Each artist may submit up to three (3) entries in any of the media categories within their age group. Each artwork submission must be made separately.
All artwork photographs become the property of Zonta of Cheyenne and may be used for promotional purposes with appropriate credit to the artist. By entering the contest, you consent to have your name and photograph appear as one of the winners.
