Mascot Design Mock-Up Submission


We are excited to work with area artists to bring this public art initiative to life for our area!

Area artists are invited to submit their mascot design mock-up(s) online for our Adopt a Bulldog mascot.

Designs, if chosen, may be on one of three sizes, Small, Medium, or Large. 

The artists’ payment for each of those sizes is:

  • Sm: $300
  • Med: $800
  • Large: $900

First, please download the submission guidelines and blank submission PDF. Once your design is complete, scan the pages into a single PDF or .doc file then upload it through the submission button below.

Please do not bring a hard copy submission to the Council for the Arts.

If you have any questions, please email them to jaxarts@jaxarts.com.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing your mascot mock-up!
