Pit Bulls Are Beautiful Art Contest (KIDS- TX): Date Change!

Nov 14 - Austin

Pit bulls are some of the most misunderstood dogs out there. Let’s help change that by letting the world know just how special they are!

Help Austin and Little Darling’s Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc. celebrate dogs at Austin Pittie Limits.

Help us show that pit bulls should be celebrated as individuals and not by their breed. We are looking for kids to show that “PIT BULLS ARE BEAUTIFUL” through their artwork. We want you to break out your paint, pencils, markers, or crayons and draw a happy, lovable pit bull. The top entries that show just how beautiful these dogs are will receive prizes and be recognized at Austin Pittie Limits.

Artwork will be displayed at Lofty Dog in October and Kerbey Lane Cafe on South Lamar in January.

Ages: 5-12 years old
Entry Deadline: October 31

Austin Pittie Limits date: November 14
