At Chalk the Walk, participants draw four by four foot chalk drawings for three blocks along the boardwalk.  This year’s theme will be Meet Me at the Movies.  What is your favorite genre of movies?  Or, better yet, favorite movie of all time?  Participants are encouraged to incorporate their love of movies into their drawing.  Other ideas are: favorite scene from a movie, favorite character, or movie logo.  The Virginia Beach boardwalk will become an exciting “movie marquee” as these chalk drawings come to life!

200 competitors will complete chalk drawings to be evaluated by a panel of judges.  Judges will score the drawings according to criteria such as composition, use of color, adherence to theme, and creativity.  There will be three competitive divisions: Amateur, Professional, and Youth.  The Youth division will be for ages 12-16.  Children 11 and under will be invited to draw for fun in a separate area.  Trophies and cash prizes will be awarded for each division.  Winners will be announced at 4:30pm at the registration tent.  The hours for the Chalk the Walk are 10:00am-5:00pm.  All participants must register by 12:30pm to qualify for the competition.  All drawings must be completed by 3:30pm to be eligible for prizes.
