YOUR art has power. Art can save lives & bring us together.

Oakland Together COVID-19 Safety Video & Art Contest is an online art competition for Oakland County residents, 10 years and older.

While our efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 have made a difference, it is still a serious health concern in Oakland County. The best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 is by wearing a mask and practicing social distancing.

There's a lot you, as an artist, can do to help keep our community safe and promote public health. Artists may submit a video or 2-D artwork showcasing COVID-19 safety by wearing a facial mask or practicing social distancing.

Entries will be submitted online for panel judging to determine the top 3 artists in each category. Public vote will ultimately decide the winners.
