Art Gone Wild Submissions are Open

October 1

The Baton Rouge Zoo invites artists of every age and experience level to submit their artwork for its annual “Art Gone Wild” contest. Share which zoo animals inspire you the most—whether it be the oh-so-limber chimpanzees or the sleek komodo dragons. Only one submission per person, and all artwork must be 2-D and drawn or painted entirely by hand. Submission categories are as follows:

Beginner: Children up to Second Grade

Children: Third–Fifth Grade

Pre-Teen: Sixth–Eighth Grade

Teenagers: Ninth–Twelfth Grade


Submissions will be on display on December 9 and 10 during the annual ZooLights event for visitors to vote for their favorites in person. First, second, and third place awards will be determined in each category by popular vote and an overall winner will be selected by community judges.

Deadline for submissions is December 1, and submitting is free. All submissions can be dropped off at BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo during normal business hours. brzoo.org.
