Bethlehem Christmas City Stamps

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

Attention all artists: now is your chance to have your original artwork used for the 2014 Christmas City seal.

The Citizens Christmas City Committee is now accepting artwork that captures the "Candle in Every Window" theme commemorating their 50th anniversary.

One selected artist will win $300 cash and a commemorative plaque which will be presented at Bethlehem's Christmas City tree lighting ceremony on November 28.

The rules speculate that the image should "illustrate the celebration of the holiday season in Bethlehem- Christmas City, USA- with an image of either a candle in a single window or of a building with many windows, each adorned with a candle or some other kind of image that captures the 'Candle in Every Window' theme," a release issued by Bethlehem initiatives said. 

The committee will accept submissions in oil, pastel, watercolor, photography, graphic and digital art.

The Christmas seal fundraiser helps pay for the holiday trees and lighting in Bethlehem.

Submissions are due by August 22 and can be sent to the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce at One East Broad Street Suite 560 in Bethlehem.

For entry forms and questions, contact Lynn Collins Cunningham at 610-739-1510 or lynnc@lehighvalleychamber.org.
