The Culbertson Mansion state historic site is seeking artists young and old to participate in its haunted house art contest.
Contestants are required to create a picture using a haunted house theme. The picture does not need to be of the Culbertson Mansion, but must be the exterior or interior of an old home.
Judging will be based on originality, technique and eye-catching appeal. Awards will be presented in each of the following categories:
One picture will be selected as the overall winner and could be adapted for use as a poster for the Culbertson Mansion 2003 haunted house promotion.
Winners will be announced Sunday, October 12 at the New Albany Harvest Homecoming Festival and contest officials will notify the winners by telephone on Tuesday, October 14.
