If you’re in the habit of bringing a sketchbook along to your local crag, listen up. The Evolv art contest is back again to give you a chance to win free climbing shoes in exchange for showing off your artistic chops.

Evolv dropped the news on its Instagram account, along with a showcase of last year’s winners.

Evolv is giving artists three different categories in which to submit:

  • Best Mixed Media
  • Best Illustration
  • Best Art on a Shoe

Don’t be intimidated. Evolv seems pretty chill about the whole thing. For instance, it claims that “interpretive dances will be accepted” in the mixed media category. Sounds like a carte blanche to get a little funky with it.

To enter the contest, make some climbing-shoe-related art and post a photo or video to your Insta feed. Make sure and include the hashtag #EvolvShoeArt in the post so the good folks at Evolv can see your creation.

According to Evolv, the contest ends Friday, Jan. 23, 2023, and is open to anyone.

Ok, artists, get to work!
