Those of you who are planning to enter our “True Colors” art contest are about to get an added incentive to dust off your art supplies. After seeing U.S. News & World Report’s coverage of our contest promotion, the folks at Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus have graciously offered to sweeten the pot for the winner.

We’re pleased to announce that in addition to the great items already set aside for our grand prize, the “Greatest Show on Earth” is donating an original painting by Kelly Anne, one of their creatively inclined circus elephants. (For examples of paintings by other elephants, click here.)

The poster-sized, framed pachyderm painting will be shipped to the winner of our contest just as soon as Kelly Anne has added her finishing touches. So get to work, America! Show us your vision of PETA’s true colors and you could be the owner of a truly priceless piece of real elephant art.
