FASTFRAME, the local custom picture framing store, is hosting its annual Art Contest for Kids. Jamile Ghizoni and Claudia Fossi, owners of Fastframe of South Miami, will be encouraging children, grades 1 through 5, to create a piece of art based on the theme: “My Favorite Fairy Tale”.
From now until May 7th, artwork will be accepted in to the store for the contest. Artwork is to be dropped off at 5900 SW 73rd Street. A first place will be chosen from among the entries brought in, and will be framed for free, courtesy of Fastframe of South Miami and donated framing materials from Nielsen Bainbridge. The first place winner is sent off to the Fastframe corporate office in Newbury Park, California, to be judged in the national contest. The national winning artist will receive a $250 Disney gift card, with an additional $250 gift card going to his or her school for art supplies. In addition, the national winning piece will be displayed on the home page of the corporate website for the month of June 2011.
