By Jeffrey Epstein

Everyone loves arrrrrrrrt! In honor of the 50th anniversary of Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland, D23 is looking for a band of swarthy artists to create Disney pirate-inspired artwork. Entrants can base their work on the beloved theme park attraction or any of the Pirates films, as well as other marauders from Disney’s treasure trove of cads including those from Peter Pan, Treasure Island, and Jake and the Never Land Pirates. Twenty-three pieces of finalist artwork will be on display throughout the D23 Expo weekend on the show floor. The winning artist will be chosen prior to the start of the D23 Expo and will receive a cash prize of $2,300. Anyone interested in participating must visit d23expo.com/designchallenge on or after February 6, 2017 to submit sketches of proposed artwork (and to find out more about other entry requirements) no later than March 31, 2017. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of creativity, originality, and artistic expression.

Finalists in both competitions will receive one (1) complimentary ticket (and one (1) for a guest) to attend D23 Expo 2017. Contestants do not need to be members of D23 to enter either contest.
