Sleeping is more than just going to bed. It’s taking the time to care for yourself — rejuvenating and refueling your body. When you wake up feeling well rested, the entire day takes on new meaning. 

Nature’s Sleep is devoted to crafting different mattresses so everyone can experience better sleep. Sleeping is different for each individual and discovering that perfect mattress is like discovering a great work of art. You may not hang the mattress on your wall for others to admire, but you look forward to seeing it every night and appreciate how it makes you feel. An exhibition at the Art Basel Miami featured artists, Wade Guyton and Kelley Walker, who turned mattresses into a work of art. The designs, colors and of course the use of mattresses as a canvas inspired Nature’s Sleep to present “The Art of Sleep Contest”.

What types of artwork are allowed?

Create any work of art, from a painting or drawing to a photo. Just make sure it revolves around sleep, a bed or mattress. It can be as simple as taking a picture of your artwork and propping it on your mattress, or it can just be a photo of sleeping in bed. Maybe you choose to surf on your mattress in the Pacific Ocean. The only boundaries to you work are your imagination and good taste. Check out some of the Nature's Sleep Art of Sleep Contest Sample Submissions for inspiration! 

Who can submit works of art?

Anyone can get crafty and create a work of art—even children. If you are under the age of 18, however, your parent or guardian must enter the contest for you.

Can I still vote if I don't submit a work of art?

Yes. If you don’t want to submit a work of art, but want to vote on other’s submissions and help select our winner, you will either need to register for the contest on our site or Like Us on Facebook to be notified of when voting begins. This will also enter you for a a chance to WIN A NATURE’S SLEEP PRODUCT valued at over $250.

When can I submit my work?

You can submit your works of art from December 13, 2013 to February 15, 2014. We want to see creative interpretations for how you would define "The Art of Sleep". The contest doesn't require the most talented or elaborate approach, but rather creativity that showcases fun and the unexpected. We don’t expect you to paint on your mattress, but if you want you can.
