Folk artist Edward Hicks is the most famous favorite son of Langhorne Borough.  His many paintings of “The Peaceable Kingdom” are immediately recognized by his stylized images of lions, lambs, cattle, cheetahs, bears, and other wild beasts, reposing in harmony. Langhorne Council for the Arts will honor Edward Hicks this year with a new photo/calendar contest. LCA invites owners of all kinds of pets — finned, feathered, or furry — to enter a photo of their favorite critter(s) in our photo contest. There are no geographic restrictions; all pets are welcome in our Peaceable Kingdom!

ALL photos entered into the contest will be pictured in our beautiful 2018 calendar, but twelve critters will be declared the “Coolest Critters.” Coolest Critters will be featured on the cover and in the monthly photo collages, and will be determined by popular vote. Votes are $1 and can be submitted online with a major credit card, by check, and by cash (cash is only accepted on the last day of the contest, Oct 28, at Olde Harvest Day in Langhorne, PA).  You can vote as often as you want, for as many animals as you want. All votes and entry fees are tax-deductible contributions to the Langhorne Council for the Arts student scholarship fund.
Owners will submit each photo with a $5 entry fee and the following info about the pet:  name, breed, date of birth or adoption (if known), owner’s name and contact info. A short description of the pet’s personality, habits, or story behind the photo can also be included.  Photos can be submitted digitally to  Entry fees and printed photos (if digital is not available) should be sent to 960 Langhorne-Yardley Road, Langhorne, PA  19047.
