As a way of promoting emu eggshell art, the American Emu Association (AEA) hosted the 2014 “EGGS’travaganza” Egg Art Contest.
All submitted emu eggshell art was on display for public viewing online at www.AEAEggArtContest.com and in person on public display on July 18, 2014 at the Embassy Suites East Peoria Hotel & Conference Center in Peoria, Illinois during the AEA’s annual national convention.
Artists competed for $600 in cash prizes. The prize money was awarded for the top 3 entries that received the highest bids. A Silent Auction with live bidders and online bidding was used to determine the winners.
