Visual art projects must include one photo, but multiple angles are helpful for judges as well. For film and dance, multiple students may participate however only one may be listed as the entrant. That should be the person who choreographed the dance or directed the film.
Each entry must contain a title and all entries must include an artist statement.
The artist statement communicates what inspired the work, how it relates to the theme, and the content of the work. The statement must include at least 10 words and not exceed 100 words. The artist statement is worth 40 out of 100 points and is just as important as the artwork.
