Student Artwork Sought for 2018 Arts Congress Official Image Contest

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

 We are looking for a work of art, created in the last two years, to showcase on the cover of the 37th annual Governor’s Arts Awards program and formal invitations that will act as the official image of the 2017 Governor’s Arts Awards.

The work should celebrate artistry, culture and unique characteristics of Arizona as the artist sees them. While there are no size or medium restrictions, submissions must be fit for digital reproduction. Keep in mind that the reproduction will be minimized to fit 8½ x 11in. or smaller and must accommodate text (similar to a magazine cover). Professional image fit for reproduction is imperative to the judging process, as the work will be partially judged based on the above criteria. Images should not contain any frame, mat, or watermark.

Artwork will be judged internally by Arizona Citizens for the Arts staff and board members.

Each artist will be required to provide a short Bio or Artist Statement (500 word limit).

Arizona Citizens for the Arts does not engage directly in the selling of artwork featured in the Governor’s Arts Awards program; however, any inquiries made will be directed to the Artist for negotiation with the collector/buyer.
