Centennial Student Art Competition Deadlines Monday

VALDOSTA - Submissions for the VSU Centennial Student Art Competition and Exhibition are due by 11:59 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7.
Sponsored by the VSU Centennial Steering Committee, the competition is open to all VSU students who were enrolled during fall semester of 2007. Entries are accepted in any traditional and contemporary media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, digital media, ceramics and jewelry. Work should focus on any aspect of the campus or community of VSU, either present or historic, and must have been completed while the artist was a student, without having been previously exhibited on VSU campus.

All artwork must be submitted digitally via the Digital Submission Form on the VSU Student Centennial Art Contest Web site via JPEG in RGB color mode via the student’s VSU email account. Image quality should be at least 1024X768 pixels but no larger than 2048x3072 pixels. No images should be larger than 2.5 megabytes (MB). Image print size should be no larger than 7 inches in any direction at 300 dpi. Digital reproductions must accurately represent the artwork. Competition judges will make preliminary decisions based on the digital submissions and will ask selected artists to submit their work for exhibition, which will begin March 3.

Prizes will be awarded for first place, $400, second place, $300, and third place, $200, based on originality and artistic excellence.
