Entries submitted without the forms will be disqualified from judging. 
  • Title and Artist statement in the form is required. Parents can fill in this information for those students who are unable to write it themselves.
  • No copyrighted material can be used.
  • The work *must* be the original work of the student. No adult intervention or peer collaboration should alter the artistic creation of the student. Adult intervention is accepted only towards providing procedural and technical guidance. Entries that do not follow these guidelines will be disqualified from judging.

Tips and Tricks :

  • Consider participating in categories besides Visual Arts. That category receives the most entries and hence, chances of getting picked for next level goes down.
  • Refer to this link on what is photograph vs. visual arts : http://downloads.capta.org/ref/ArtForm_ID_PhotoVA.pptx
  • Please ensure to fill out the required forms in full (especially artist title and statement). Numerous entries get dropped due to lack of this information.
  • Please allow children to expand on their creativity with minimal adult interaction/participation.
