Calling All Artists! The Wellesley Phone Book Cover Contest Wants You!

by jill on October 13th, 2011

The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club (WHJWC) announces its annual open call for artists who have captured the beauty of Wellesley through his or her artwork.  The local contest has been a 44-year tradition in Wellesley with hundreds of artist submissions throughout the years.  It has become the celebratory kick-off to the annual Wellesley Phone Book project, a major WHJWC fundraiser that supports many local Wellesley charities. 

 Every year, the winning artwork of this contest is showcased on the cover of the Wellesley Phone Book.  Winning is quite an honor as the selected artwork graces the cover of each of the Wellesley Phone Books distributed annually to over 11,000 Wellesley households and businesses.  This valuable reference guide for Wellesley residents is published every year in June.

 All artwork to be entered into the Wellesley Phone Book Cover Contest must be submitted to Phone Book Committee c/o Femina Ali at 5 Seaward Road, Wellesley MA 02481 or electronically to femina@wellesleydentalgroup.com.  Deadline for consideration is December 31, 2011. 

Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving back to the Wellesley community and its MetroWest neighbors. All proceeds from the Wellesley Phone Book and from other WHJWC fundraising efforts provide support through scholarships, charitable giving to community services, educational enrichments, elderly assistance and municipal health initiatives as well as other projects dedicated to continuing the excellence of our community.

    I am an artist representative, and I would like one of my stable artists to paint something to submit. Any tips? May I see previous covers? I am currently in the DC area, but lived for years in Newton.
