KAMLOOPS - There's some stiff competition when it comes to dull work spaces in Kamloops, if the submissions to a current contest are to be believed.

There's only a week left in the Boring Office Contest, which was started Feb. 5 by the Kamloops Art Gallery so workers could spotlight their sad work space and potentially win an art rental.

The artwork will be provided from the latest exhibition after a panel of judges choose three winners. Those lucky enough to have a bad office will get to make a wishlist of local pieces to class up their space.

First place gets three months of free rental for three pieces of artwork, second prize is two rental pieces and third prize is one rental piece.

To enter the contest, load a photo of your office on the art council's "Boring Office" Contest Facebook page.

Here's a look at some of the submissions so far:
