Eco Art Contest Finalists: Pick your Favourite

We've whittled down the entries received for our Lavish & Lime Eco Art Contest to five finalists. Which do you like best?

Entrants across Canada were asked to get creative with their recycling and send us a photo. Below are our top five picks of all the works of art we received.

We'd love to hear your thoughts before we send the final three on to our judging panel which includes Juno-nominated green music duo Bobs & Lolo, editor of Canada's eco-aware, founder of national family site and one of Canada's premier artists Cori Creed whose work is presently showing in Vancouver, San Francisco and New York. The judges will determine our grand prize and runners up winners. These will be announced on or before May 31st.

Leave a comment below telling us which is your favourite by Monday, May 23rd!

I vote for Colorful Canary "Caged Intelligence"! Besides cleaverly making use of recycled materials this depicts something that is so important to our health and the wellbeing of intelligent birds that are forced to live in filthy conditions to over supply a gluttonous nation.
