Community Mural Contest

April 9, 2014

The Oceanside Public Library invites photographers of all ages to participate in the Growing the Oceanside Community photography contest. Inspired by the recent remodel and of the Mission Branch Library, community members are invited to show their interpretation of Growing a Community.

The Mission Branch Library décor is not yet complete, the final piece will be a mural created by, and for, the Oceanside community. The photo contest will determine the image for a new mural in the children’s area. The final product will be a large mixed-media mosaic image, generated from the selected winning photograph, divided into small squares – equal parts original photograph, drawing and painting.

The contest is free to enter and open to all ages, and you do not need to be a resident of Oceanside to participate. The winning photo should be a striking image that illustrates the theme of Growing a Community, get creative! Photograph a tree, people holding hands, a block party – anything that you think demonstrates the theme, literally or figuratively. The final product will be a permanent display at the Mission Branch Library. Submissions must be received by July 1st, 2014 in order to be considered.

This free contest is sponsored by the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library. For more information, please visit the library’s website at www.oceansidepubliclibrary.org, call (760) 435-5625 or visit the Library’s Facebook page.
