Calling South Carolina student artists!
Submission deadline: Friday, Feb. 15, 2019
From now through February 15, 2019 Lake City’s ArtFields Jr. is accepting art submissions from South Carolina student-artists in grades 1-12 who are 18 years old or younger.
Submissions are free and over $5,000 is up for grabs in prize money, with individual prizes ranging from $250 for lower elementary students, and up to $500 for first prize high schoolers.
Besides the monetary awards up for grabs in four grade categories, selected ArtFields Jr. artists will have their work on display during ArtFields for the thousands of visitors who travel to the event each year and will have the opportunity to win student choice awards voted by fellow students.
Each submission will be submitted online through the ArtFields Jr. ArtBooth submission platform. The submission process will include a consent form. If you are a teacher or parent assisting multiple students with submitting artwork, please note that the same email address cannot be used for multiple applications. Each application requires an individual student’s or parent’s email address. ArtFields Jr. will use provided emails for all communications.
Artwork will be judged based on the following criteria:
- Creativity and originality
- Quality of composition and overall design
- Technical ability
- Overall impression of the art. What is the effect of the artwork in general and as a whole? Does the artwork stand on its own as a complete and outstanding work of art?
- Artist Statement
