"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."

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.
