Voting is now open for the Nelson Star newspaper art contest.

The contest challenged readers of all ages to turn their used copies of the Star into unique works of art.

Judges have sorted through the incredible entries and picked 17 of their favourites to post on the Star contest page for public voting from April 1 to 7. The artist to collect the most votes in their category wins.

Submitted entries have a chance to win a prize from 4Cats Art Studio. The winner in the children’s category will get free enrolment into a 4Cats camp or regular session class. The winner in the adult’s category will get enrolment into one of 4Cats new adult classes. Both prizes are valued at more than $150.

To vote in the Nelson Star’s newspaper art contest, go to nelsonstar.com/contests and look for “Extra Extravaganza.”

Winners will be announced in VURB on April 12 and will have their photo on the front page with their creation.
