Our good friends at Slowtide have kicked off their second annual Creative Canvas Art Contest (a little earlier than planned) in hopes that it will encourage aspiring artists and photographers to tap into their creativity during these challenging times. The brand has worked with major players in the arts community including Takashi Murakami, Kevin Lyons, Quentin Monge, Mark McInnis, Clark Little, and Ty Williams, and now we are looking for their next great collaboration!




Here is the message on the contest! And good luck!!! From Slowtide (and take a look at one of last year's winners, Sickfaces): 

We want to reward your creativity! Please submit your art and photography via Instagram and show us how your creative canvas would make the perfect Slowtide Beach Towel. Please review the rules to enter.

We will select one artist & one photographer and each will receive $500, plus $500 worth of Slowtide product. Your work will also be made into 50 limited edition towels and will be showcased in this summer’s “The Art of Drying Off” art show.
