Get patriotic with your DecoArt paints by participating in the 1st Annual DecoArt Paintriotic Contest to celebrate DecoArt's birthday and our nation's Independence Day. DecoArt was launched as a company in May of 1985, so it is celebrating its 34th birthday this year. No matter if you have used DecoArt products for years or if you are new to the game, you are invited to participate by submitting a paintriotic project. The winner will be announced on the 4th of July! This is a great opportunity to be featured on the DecoArt blog and to win amazing prizes. 
  • Grand Prize  - $1000 cash + TOP 100 Americana Acrylics + Project Tutorial Published on DecoArt.com
  • Runner Up - $500 cash + TOP 50 Americana Acrylics 

HOW TO ENTER: Find the full contest rules, information, and further instructions here. Projects must contain key elements found in the American flag including stars and stripes. While the colors should be close to the traditional red, white, and blue, feel free to show creativity in regards to the shades of the colors selected and any antiquing/finishing techniques. This contest is open to ALL surfaces under the sun (or flag), including but not limited to: canvas, furniture, home décor, glass, clothing/textiles, or jewelry. To enter the DecoArt Flag Painting Challenge, email the following photos to contest@decoart.com:

  • At least ONE process photo showing the DecoArt product in use.
  • At least ONE final, high-resolution photo of your flag themed project.
We will be accepting submissions until 11:59 pm (EST) June 14, 2019.

YOU will be featured on the DecoArt Blog even if you don't win the Grand Prize! After all of the entries are received, we will display your project with pride on the DecoArt Blog. We will attribute credit to your work by using only your first name and last initial unless you advise otherwise. Other forms of credit that will be considered for publishing include a link to your website, blog, or an email address. The blog post with featured submissions will be published at the end of June.

We look forward to seeing your submissions!

in reference to: At least ONE process photo showing the DecoArt product in use. Do you mean you want a photo of me using the paints I used for my project?

Very fun opportunity! Can you clarify...is it ok to send two or three process photos? Is there a file size preferred for high resolution, at least 1 mg?


May 10, 2019

Hi Pat - Yes, you can send multiple process photos. We have no file size requirements, but higher resolution is better since we can always make it smaller if we need to.
