Do you use your pet as an artist's model? Well, the Anti-Cruelty Society is currently sponsoring their 4th annual Animal Images competition, and the deadline has just been extended to July 29. Each applicant may submit slides or photographs representing up to three pieces of art which can be in many forms from acrylic to photograph to sculpture. The competition is open to artists whose work benefits the genre by depicting or representing animals in art. You can get more information, and download an application form at their website.
