New Paleo-Art Contest in Germany

New Paleo-Art Contest in Germany
(Forwarded on behalf of Oliver Wings)

Dear friends of Paleo-Art,
As you may know, the Dinosaurier-Park in Münchehagen, Northern Germany
is known for its in situ exhibit of a large number of original
dinosaur trackways. Around this spectacular footprint site, more than
220 life-sized dinosaur models are on display and all available fossil
material of the dwarfed sauropod Europasaurus holgeri is being
prepared at this location as well.

We are currently planning a new exhibit on Europasaurus holgeri and as
an integral part of the exhibit we would like to show a large number
of drawings, reconstructions, and other artwork of Europasaurus
holgeri, which preferably depict this taxon in its natural habitat. To
reach that goal, we are initiating a paleo-art contest. Submission
deadline is March 1, 2011.

For more information, including scientific information about
Europasaurus, please refer to our website:

We are looking forward to your contributions!
With our best regards from Münchehagen, Germany
