Lights Out presents a county-wide community art contest. We are seeking original work from artists addressing community themes. This contest is an opportunity for people to represent themselves, their experience, and community. We're awarding $1000 each to our People’s Choice Award, Youth Award, and Adult Award winners.

"Winners and runners-up of the #MaineReunited contest showcased themes of community perseverance during a special exhibit held Saturday at the University of Maine at Presque Isle. The contest, hosted by the online-based business Lights Out Art Consulting, featured work by adult and youth artists. Aroostook is the second county in Maine that Lights Out has chosen for the contest after Oxford County."
