Submission guidelines

Entries should be original artwork—such as drawings, paintings, original prints, etc.—and measure no larger than 8.5” x 11″ (215.9 x 279.4 mm). Original artwork or a high-resolution photo of the artwork may be submitted. This contest highlights traditional artistic skills; no photographs will be judged for inclusion in the contest, though digital artwork is acceptable. Please stay tuned for future opportunities for our Shareholder and Descendant photographers. 

 Submissions will be judged on a range of factors, including artistic quality, originality, and strength of expression in conveying the concepts involved. 

*Entrants under the age of 18 must submit a Parent/Legal Guardian Acknowledgement and Agreement. High-school category applicants who are age 18+ do not require a Parent/Legal Guardian Acknowledgement.
