Share with Your People

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival and the Nevada County Arts Council are inviting artists of all sorts to submit their work for possible inclusion at the 21st annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival, which takes place February 16-20th, 2023. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest annual fundraiser for the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), helping us to unite the community to protect and restore the Yuba River watershed. 

Much as the Wild & Scenic Film Festival uses environmental and adventure films to inspire activism, we are looking for art submissions that do the same. While all artworks will be considered, we are especially interested in pieces that interpret our theme, CommUNITY.  This theme focuses on the importance of approaching challenges as a unified community and reflects the significance of grassroots movements in protecting nature for future generations.  

Artists are encouraged to submit pieces that will inspire environmental activism through art and highlight the beauty of the natural world.  

Submissions will be accepted in three categories:  
– 2-D: Paintings, prints, collages, mixed media, and panels with 1.5 inches or less of depth variation 
– 3-D: Sculpture and pieces with depth variations greater than 1.5 inches 
– Photography: All photography, including digital and film, color, black and white 

Artists can submit up to 3 pieces per entry in a single category.
