Artwork Eligibility:
The subject matter of the work is left up to the artists’ imagination, though all appropriate subjects will be considered. Artwork can be submitted in any dry medium, or wet medium applied in a linear fashion that would be traditionally considered drawing. Final judgment on whether an artwork is considered “drawing” will be determined by the editors.

If your work is selected, you will be asked to submit a paragraph that speaks to its relation to the theme of depth, dimension, and space. For more information on the specifics of the theme, and accepted mediums, please click HERE.
