The Local Option Arts Awards are up and running with flying colours.
Sixteen businesses in the heart of Port Perry are hosting sixteen artists from Sept 14th – 28th with members of the public getting to chose the winners by voting for their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices.
First prize is $500-, 2nd prize- $250 and 3rd prize – $125.
The business who hosts the winner and a member of the public who voted will also win prizes. They will receive copies of our book “Persephone’s Eden” – A Celebration of the Life and Works of Michael Reeves”, about the sponsor of this event, and $50- to spend at a participating business of their choice.
There will be readings from the book at the Scugog Arts gallery from 2 to 2:30 pm as part of Culture Days in Scugog celebrations.
