D23 Announces Contest to Become Official Donald Duck Portrait Artist – Winner to Receive Rare ‘Duckster’ Award

Donald DuckBURBANK, Calif., May 26 — Irascible, cranky, mischievous, outrageous – Donald Duck has a seemingly limitless personality, and in honor of his birthday on June 9, Disney’s D23 is commissioning an official portrait from those who know Donald best: his fans.

For the first time ever, Disney is turning to fans to create an official portrait of one of its biggest stars. Finalists in the Donald Duck 75th Anniversary Portrait Contest will have their work unveiled and displayed at the inaugural D23 Expo, which will be held September 10-13 at the Anaheim Convention Center, adjacent to Disneyland.

The contest is hosted by D23: The Official Community for Disney Fans, and is open to all D23 Members who are 18 or older. Full-length oil, acrylic or watercolor canvas portraits of Donald Duck, no larger than 24″ W x 36″ H, are eligible. Artists must first submit an original sketch, in any medium or size, of the planned artwork. The submission form, as well as full contest rules and additional details, can be found at the official D23 website, http://www.disney.com/D23. All finalists selected to have their works displayed will be eligible for two complimentary, four-day admission passes to the D23 Expo.

One Man’s D23…

Disney Snowglobes has a few photos of a D23 exhibit set up in the One Man’s Dream exhibit at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. One thing that caught my eye was the series of D23 portraits featuring Disney characters such as the Jiminy Cricket one that was first shown to the world exclusively by Stitch Kingdom. In addition to Jiminy (Wishes Come True) and Bandleader Mickey (Made for You and Me), the portraits include Cinderella’s glass slipper (Perfect Fit), the Mad Hatter (Your Cup of Tea), Dopey (Speechless), Tinker Bell (Think of the Happiest Things) and 101 Dalmations (Hits the Spot).
