The Westminster Kennel Club has partnered with Pratt Institute for its annual art contest. The contest participants will be current students and alumni. The winning artist will receive $10,000 and the five finalists $1,000.

Pratt Institute, founded in 1887, has a mission to educate artists and creative professionals to be responsible contributors to society. The Westminster Kennel Club, founded in 1884, also shares with Pratt a long history of excellence in its field, and promoting responsibility among dog owners. These two organizations based in New York City for more than a century say they look forward to promoting canines in art together.

The winning artwork and five finalists’ pieces will become the commemorative poster, Official Program cover and notecards for the 142nd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, held February 12-13, 2018. For 2018, a donation of $15,000 will be disbursed equally between three national breed clubs for dog rescue efforts. The donation will assist the clubs by offsetting rescue-related expenses such as transportation, veterinary care, grooming, boarding, feeding and training. The three selected clubs will receive their check in a presentation at Madison Square Garden during the event.
