Who is eligible to participate in the Competition?

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.

Who will make up the jury for this competition?

The jury consists of Associate Professor and Chair of Printmaking Maggie Denk-Leigh, Professor and Chair of Jewelry + Metals Matthew Hollern, Professor and Chair of Photography Nancy McEntee, Assistant Professor and Chair of Animation Anthony Scalmato, Assistant Professor and Chair of Painting Tommy White, and Associate Professor Mari Hulick.

When assessing the work, what criteria will the judges be using?

The judging criteria will be based on originality and technical skill as defined below.

  • Originality: Artwork that is submitted should represent independent thought and imagination. It should be novel and distinctive in style and concept. 
  • Technical Skill: To have a strong command and proficiency of an art medium (an example would be graphite, digital arts, etc.) How it is applied to further the idea or originality of the artwork will be taken into consideration.

Are Art Teachers required to register in the 2D3D online registration system?

Art Teachers are not required to register, but their participation plays an important role in getting students to engage in the competition, and begin thinking about career paths in art and design. However, once a student completes the registration form and submits their artwork, we will contact the teacher to confirm that he/she is their student.

If I haven’t finished my artwork, should I wait to register until I have finished?

Yes. You must register and upload your artwork at the same time. The registration and uploading of artwork phase will take place from November 25, 2013 - January 24, 2014.

What contact information of mine is required for participation in the 2D3D competition?

Your first and last name, e-mail address, mailing address, high school name, and grade level. In addition, you must submit your teacher's name and e-mail address.

Can I submit artwork in collaboration with other students?

Entry requirements do allow participants to work together on projects. See the 2D3D Prizes section on the Competition Guidelines page 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.

Can I enter my work in more than one category?

You can only enter work in one category.

Are there any fees or associated cost to enter the competition?

No, entry into the competition is free.

Is the artwork that I upload required to have a title?

Yes, when you upload your artwork using 2D3D’s online upload tool, you will see a text field asking you for the title of your work.

Can I submit a work if it is from a class assignment, or has already won a prize in another contest?

As long as it’s a different contest, you can submit any work that is consistent with the competition guidelines.
