Recycled Art Contest

Presented by the Port Royal Sound Foundation
To help bring awareness to Beaufort County’s plastic bag ban and keep the water and land of the Port Royal Sound Area clean and healthy.

Artists are invited to participate in the second annual Recycled Art Contest.  The theme for all artwork should relate to the Port Royal Sound – think ocean, animals, beaches, local culture & history, and fun in the sun!  Entries must be recently created from at least 80% recyclables or trash material. $3500 in prize money will be awarded in several categories. *Contest is limited to 100 entries. 

Individuals, clubs, schools, families, businesses are all encouraged to participate.  Maybe a life-size sculpture of a Loggerhead Turtle? Or your own version of a seagrass basket – use your imagination to help us bring awareness to keeping our community and the Port Royal Sound Area clean!
