Embracing Our Differences invites entries for the competition.”What is the theme? Final selections (39 artists will be selected) will be chosen based on artistic excellence and originality in the reflection of our theme “enriching lives through diversity”. This may include, by way of suggestion only, any one or more of the following: appearance; racial differences; physical or mental impairment; language, religious or cultural differences; environmental stewardship; social economic status; sexual orientation or identity; positive attitude; inclusiveness; self-acceptance; taunting, bullying and confrontation; human rights and equality; understanding and kindness; empowerment or any other topic which you believe furthers our theme of “enriching lives through diversity.” Do not feel limited by these suggestions. We strongly encourage new and fresh interpretations of our theme”.
Your original art may be any size and medium; however, you must create or scan and submit it as a high-resolution digital file. All art must have a horizontal orientation.
There is no submission fee.
A total of $3,000 (US) will be presented in the form of three separate awards – $1,000 each for “Best-in-Show Adult”, “Best-in-Show Student” and the “People’s Choice”.
