ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Got any artistic talent? You could help the Flint RiverQuarium and win a prize.

The Riverquarium is looking for an original creative design for the logo for its 2013 River Zombies 5k race.

The race will take place on an obstacle course and participants will be chased by zombies. Riverquarium representatives think an open competition is a great way for artists to showcase their creativity and possibly win some cash.

"I have a committee of community volunteers that are helping me run the race and we've decided we want a new logo and we wanted to open it up to the community of Albany, give an artist in Albany an opportunity to show their stuff, one of them will hopefully be featured as the new logo," said member and volunteer service manager Vicki Churchman.

The River Zombie Run will be October 26th.

Artists must turn in their submissions for the logo contest by August 18th.
