ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Preparations began Friday evening at the Art Park for the first ever street art contest.

Artists from across southwest Georgia will gather starting at 9 a.m. to create works of art and have them judged on Saturday.

Admission is $5 to see wide-ranging pieces of art.

"It's a street art competition, which is a real general term," said event organizer Cameron Malphrus. "Street art refers mostly to just public art. It's whatever they want to put on there, we're going to see what the community has."

The winner will take home $300.
