Art Submission FAQs

What kind of artwork can I submit?

Any two-dimensional work of art made by a young artist under 19 years old can be submitted! Photography, drawing, painting, or any other medium that can be easily displayed as an image on the final +1 Membership gift item is acceptable. 

Consider using one of the following prompts while creating your art: 

  • How do the arts build a community for you and other young people? 
  • What does art mean to me?

What are the design parameters?

The artwork needs to be 300dpi when it is about 4” x 9”inches. Please send a high-resolution image of your artwork. Hi-res images are at least 300 pixels per inch (ppi or dpi). 

How do I check if the work is 300dpi on a computer?

On a Mac 

Right (control click) click on the image and that should pull up a menu. Choose “get info”. That will open a new menu that lists the dimensions and the pixel dimensions.  

On a PC 

To check a photo’s resolution on a Windows PC, select the file you want to use. Right-click on the image and then select “Properties.” A window will appear with the image’s details. Go to the “Details” tab to see the image’s dimensions and resolution.

How do I submit artwork for consideration?

Please Label your work with this naming convention before you upload: ParentFirstname ParentLastName_ChildFirstName , so we know whose work is whose.  (example: BeyonceKnowles_BlueIvy)

After you have named your file. Please upload a hi resolution image (300dpi) of your completed work to our online form or mail it in.

You can submit up to three artworks. And 1,2, or 3 to your file name for each work submitted if you are submitting more than one artwork.
