Chaa Creek Announces Color Belize Art Competition

Calling All Young Artists From Around The World! Chaa Creek Wants To Hear From You

The Lodge at Chaa Creek is calling on young artists from around the world to use their talents to celebrate Belize’s beautiful wildlife.

Here, at one of Belize’s most popular eco-resorts, we love the outdoors. And with 400-acres of a private rainforest nature reserve as our backyard, we understand that it’s no fun to be cooped up indoors.

We also know how important it is right now for everyone to do their part, and make this Coronavirus history by staying indoors, and we want to thank you with our:

Chaa Creek Color Belize Art Competition

Are you

  • between the ages of seven and 14,
  • someone who loves wildlife: animals, birds, reptiles, insects and creatures of the sea,
  • creative and enjoys making art, and
  • would like to take your family on a vacation at Belize’s most casually luxurious eco-resort?

Then Chaa Creek’s Color Belize Art Competition is for you

This is a chance for you to create pictures of your favorite Belizean animal (or animals): animals, birds, reptiles, infections and creatures of the sea, and then show them to the world.  Draw, paint, sketch, or use whatever medium you like to capture the look and feel of any creature you choose – from the largest to the smallest, as long as it’s an animal native to Belize, and fits on canvas or an art sheet that’s at least:

  • 8.5 by 11 inches

And we receive it between:

  • April 15th and July 15th, 2020

As long as you follow those simple rules, our judges will consider your artwork for one of three great prizes.

And remember – you can enter as many times as you like!
