How do I submit my art?

AWA is taking submissions from June 1st through June 30th! We are unable to accept digital submissions at this time, so please drop off or mail your art to AWA. ART MUST BE SUBMITTED WITH SUBMISSION FORM.

Art can be mailed to:

Animal Welfare Association
Attn: Sophia Barrett
509 Centennial Blvd
Voorhees, NJ 08043

If you are unable to mail or drop off your artwork, or you are a part of a large group that is submitting artwork (i.e. a class), we are happy to work with you and find a time when an AWA volunteer or staff member can pick it up. Please reach out to SophiaB@awanj.org for more information.


Grand Prize Winner: The 2019 grand prize winner of the Art for Animals contest will be featured on AWA’s first ever original holiday card. The card will be professionally printed and sent to thousands of AWA’s supporters!

All winners will also be featured on AWA’s website, AWA’s Facebook page and hung at AWA’s Adoption Center!


Please have all artwork submitted to AWA by June 30, 2019 in order to be entered into the contest. (Note: Artwork received after this date will not be considered). Again, we are unable to accept digitally submitted artwork this year. Art submitted without the necessary submission form will not be considered.
