When are submissions due?

All submission must be submitted by 5 p.m. on May 9, 2014.

What digital format does the image have to be?

All images must be no more than 10MB and they must be in JPEG format.

Are students limited to one submission or can they submit more than one entry?

Each student may submit three entries.

What does “appropriate content” mean? Does it mean that the work is supposed to represent the college or not display anything that could be deemed as offensive?

The winning work will be displayed on a poster, so if a student cannot imagine it as representative of the talent of the students, he or she should not submit it.

Will the work, if selected, be seen as an electronic image only or will the original be displayed?

While it is not a requirement, we hope to display the original art work at the Student Academic Conference in October. We hope to be able to offer free travel to students who receive the top three prizes.

When will you announce the winners?

The winners will be announced in June.

Do I have to sign over my rights to the art?

No, the artist owns the art. However, we do ask that the award winners sign a release so we can use the image in college publications.

Do the winning artists get to display their work?

Yes, during the Student Academic Conference being held on Oct. 24-25 in Albany, N.Y. If your work is selected, more detailed information will follow.

Where can I submit my work?
