Visitors Center seeking artist for its Christmas shirt

The staff at the Biloxi Visitors Center is asking the community to get involved and submit a design for the 2023 Biloxi Visitors Center Christmas shirt art contest.

“In the past, the center has made our own Christmas shirts,” said Erica Pustay of the Biloxi Visitors Center. “This year, we are asking local artists to submit designs. This contest will allow the city to showcase some of the artists we have on the coast.”

Those interested should submit artwork that depicts the Biloxi Lighthouse with a Christmas theme. Any medium is allowed but it must be suitable for T-shirt reproduction. There is no cost to enter the contest.

The deadline for design submissions is Friday, Sept., 29 and they are to be sent digitally to
