To add to the Renaissance Month celebration, the Alabama Renaissance Faire sponsors an art contest (not a poster contest) for students in grades K-6.

The rules for this competition are as follows:

    a. Famous people of the period (Michelangelo, da Vinci, Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth I).        
    b. Fantasy creatures (dragons, unicorns, fairies, trolls).
    c. Life during Medieval/Renaissance times (knights, peasants, nobility, castles).


3. The size of any entry must not exceed 22″ x 28″.

4. The student’s name, grade and school MUST appear on the BACK of the entry. 

5. Entries must be received by Monday, October 2, 2023

    Each school may submit TEN (10) entries per division (K, 1-3, 4-6), the total not to exceed 30        entries. Teachers are encouraged to display unsubmitted artwork at their schools. 

All entries must be delivered (e-mail for appointment) or mailed to:
