This contest is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, instructors, graphic designers, illustrators, art directors, photographers, and those in the fine arts.
Guidelines and Submission Information
The contest judges base their decisions for winners on the most interesting, inspirational or innovative submissions. Judging is done on digitally submitted work. According to the contest sponsor:
"We search the web for interesting projects in art and design to share with our readers... Inspiration can come from an innovative chair design ... an unusual ring or from an interview with a well-known designer, artist, or something from one's past. We bring together the creative community like no one else."
Eligible entries must have been created within the past 12 months. Your artwork should be submitted in 300 dpi, RGB, JPEG. If your entry is in vertical format it must be 8 inches wide. If your submission is in horizontal format, it must be 10 inches wide. Entries are graded on a scale from 0 to 4.
Professionals can upload their artwork by going to the contest website, while students can submit their work through this online link. There is an entry fee of $10 for each submission. There is no limit to the number of pieces you may enter as long as an entry fee accompanies each piece.
