2014 KHNS Membership Art Print – Call for entries

KHNS seeks local artist submissions for its 2014 art print. The art print is an integral part of KHNS fundraising and publicity efforts, and will be offered for purchase and as an incentive for membership. KHNS art prints are considered by many to be collector’s items, and are displayed in homes and businesses throughout the region. The artist is featured prominently on air and on the KHNS website.


To be eligible for consideration, artists must reside in the Haines/Skagway/Klukwan areas. Entries should be representative in some way of the geography, biology, history, culture or general spirit of the Upper Lynn Canal. If the artwork is three dimensional, please submit a print ready image. Entries must consist of work that has not been previously reproduced. Artist must be 18 or older to participate.


Images must be submitted in high resolution 350dpi.JPG format by April 30th. The selection process consists of a committee including board members, staff and a community member reviewing the individual art pieces anonymously and will take place the first week of May at which time the donor will be announced. The artist and KHNS then sign an agreement giving the artist copies of the final print and KHNS the right to use and reproduce that image for KHNS. 

To submit, email image to with the following information:

Artist name/location

Brief artist bio

Image title

KHNS Survey 

To get an updated sense of what listeners want from KHNS, we conducted a survey in late February in which 220 community members participated. The survey was available online as well as on the street.Some were members, some not and all had different concerns and congratulations about our current programming but there was a lot of common ground and that is where we concentrated our focus. See results on survey page.

Lynn Canal Broadcasting extends our appreciation to the Juneau Community Foundation and the  Douglas-Dornan Foundation, for their generous contribution to our archiving program. We are taking the old reel to reels from earlier days of KHNS and transferring to hard drive - recycling at its best.

We purchased a laptop and software and along with the support of Southeast Alaska Independent Living and the Alaska State Department of Vocational Rehabilitation have started in on our project. Thank you!!



 KHNS 2013 Print donated by  Alaskan Artist Katie Sevigny and underwritten by the Skagway Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Golden Circle Chapter of the Alaska Travel Industry Association. Many thanks to our generous donors.
