How artwork should be submitted:
  • Traditional Art: Submissions should be 8.5x11 inches. Please do not fold or crease the artwork. The artwork can be most any medium as long as the art is relatively flat. Charcoal and pastel drawings should be sprayed with a fixative. Do not use glitter, sand, wet liquids that can flake off. These are difficult to digitize and may damage the works of other students. Artwork must be in the horizontal or “landscape” position as it best fits the wall calendar’s format.  The artwork should be stand-alone artwork; do not include the name of the month, days of the week, or calendar dates into the art itself.
  • Digital Art/Photography: Please ensure submissions are either TIFF or JPG. It is highly recommended that all photos be no smaller than 12 Megapixels. The photos need to fit a 9”x12” area and be at least 300 dpi. Artwork in the horizontal or “landscape” position best fits the wall calendar’s format.
Other Requirements:
Each submission MUST include a signed entry form. Art work should be submitted on or before Monday, May 10, 2021.

How artwork/artist should be identified:
Each entry must include a copy of the 2020-2021 entry form available in this packet, or downloaded here.  The form must be signed by each student-artist and parent/ guardian (if the student is under 18 years old) or teacher acknowledging the student has adhered to the rules of originality and each submission is original according to the guidelines above.
