How does it work?

Who’s eligible? There are five age categories: 4-7; 8-11; 12-14; 15-17, and for the first time, adults.

When is it due? Online entry deadline: midnight, Dec. 9. Mailed entries must be postmarked or dropped off in the lobby of the Observer, 600 S. Tryon St., by Dec. 9.

How do I do it? Entries should be about 6 inches by 6 inches, using any medium.
