CRESTVIEW — The Crestview News Bulletin is moving into its new office, 638 N. Ferdon Blvd., on Friday and the staff would like the yellow newspaper rack outside the office to reflect North Okaloosa's spirit.
The winning artist will receive a $100 commission, bragging rights, and their work published in the News Bulletin.
Staffers have identified two leading candidates among submissions received, although newspaper management reserves the right to use no submitted concept unless it's right fit.
“North Okaloosa County's spirit includes a love of our military and our nation; the area's bountiful natural resources; hometown pride — whether you root for Crestview's Bulldogs and enjoy the Big Red Machine, Baker's Gators or the Laurel Hill Hoboes — and a rich history of railroad commerce; not to mention signature local events like the Triple B Festival," News Bulletin Editor Thomas Boni said. "But what does it mean to you, the artist? And how can our newspaper rack display that hometown pride? That's the point of this design contest."
A mural-style design is preferred.
Email submissions to News Bulletin Editor Thomas Boni by July 31 to enter.
