Criteria for Artwork

  • Due to space limitations, all work must be 2-dimensional (including canvas panels). No 3-dimensional art is eligible.
  • Artwork can be done in any 2-D medium.
  • All students in grades 4 to 7 can enter.
  • The artwork may be created at school or at home, but should be done independently.
  • All artwork should be original; you cannot copy well known images, or trace someone else’s work.
  • Artwork should be unique. Try something completely different; be creative and inventive!
  • Artwork may be an extension of what has been taught in class, but not a duplicate of a teacher’s or other student’s work.
  • Please ensure that the work selected for your school is varied.
  • Artwork should not be doctored or cropped by someone else to fit an adult’s vision.
