Performance Art at MOCA Cleveland
Participants must be enrolled in a public, private or parochial high school program that includes 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade, and must live in the United States.
All registration and artwork entries must be uploaded by 12:00 midnight, March 22, 2013.
The jury is made up of faculty members at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Each juror will be responsible for judging one of the four main categories that include Visual Arts, Design, Integrated Media, and Craft. Once the four category winners have been determined, the jurors will then review their work again, and vote on a ‘Best in Show’ winner.
Judging will be blind, so the jurors will not know the identities of the people who have entered the work.
The top prize for this competition is called ‘Best in Show’. That prize includes $2,500 in cash, and a paid round-trip flight and hotel room for two nights to University Circle in Cleveland. To qualify for ‘Best in Show’, a participant must first win one of four categories that include Visual Arts, Integrated Media, Design and Craft.
Also included as a prize when winning ‘Best in Category’ is an annual $10,000 scholarship at the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA), which over four years totals $40,000! The $10,000 Scholarships will be renewed annually for up to 4 years of undergraduate study at CIA as long as the recipient maintains a 3.0 cumulative GPA and remains enrolled full-time.
When students submit projects that have been collaborative, the cash award is divided between the participants per instruction from the ‘lead participant.’ In regards to the annual $10,000 CIA scholarship, up to five students per ‘collaboration’ are eligible to win the $10,000 scholarship at one time. Collaborations beyond more than five students will require a review process on a case-by-case basis to see if CIA can issue additional scholarships.
Entry requirements do allow participants to work together on projects. See ‘2D3D Prizes’ above to learn more about how prizes are structured when there is more than one participant working together on one or more entries. For collaborative projects, the Participation Agreement and Release Form must be completed and uploaded to the registration form. (See Participation Agreement and Release Form, PDF Download)
The judging criteria will be based on originality and technical skill as defined below.
Students cannot use copyrighted music in their work without the permission of the original artist. Review our Copyright Release Form, and follow the directions accordingly. (See Copyright Release Form, PDF Download)
In addition to the registration form, you must get the consent of any recognizable people who you may have photographed, videotaped or filmed. (See Appearance Release Form, PDF Download)
Students who submit work to the Video/Film category are required to complete the Video Entry Agreement Form (per video entry) and submit it along with their entry to the registration form. (See Video Entry Agreement Form, PDF Download)
Once you finish uploading your artwork, we will contact your teacher to confirm that you are their student.
