Note the new look and feel to the contest entry and voting procedure. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org. In particular, the Online Contest Prospectus has replaced the Requirements and Instructions Page (soon to be obsolete).
PAPNM members are invited to participate in the Cloud Appreciation Online Contest, summer 2018. Members can submit one painting executed between June 22 and Sept 10, with a Cloud theme. Because the summer monsoon months are known for their dramatic skies - these paintings will be a snapshot of how the sky/clouds appear in various locations within New Mexico and beyond. The 1-week voting period will follow.
See also the Contests page for this information and for any updates.

Online contests do not have an entry fee. Only members may submit work. All work must be completed 80 percent en plein air during the specified contest period and NOT painted under the guidance of an instructor.
Participants will be allowed one submission for any contest. Members then vote for their favorite painting. The painting with the highest number of votes wins an award and is featured on the PAPNM homepage as well as in PAPNM Facebook postings.
