Deadline for Entries: May 25, 2018
The contest is international and open to post-secondary and high school students. Only digital entries are accepted for this competition.
High school students may only apply to the high school categories. The rest of the categories are for post-secondary students.
You may submit any work completed either as a school requirement or independently (personal work) during the course of your studies, during any year of your schooling, as long as you have not submitted the work to the Student Awards before.
If you graduated post-secondary school within the last year, you may submit work completed during your studies to the 2018 Student Awards, as long as you have not submitted the work to the Student Awards before.
NOTE: Provide a phone number and email address that you access regularly outside of school. All winners will be notified at the end of the regular school year and it is crucial that you are available to provide the images we need for print. Final description and credits must also be provided at the entry stage.
Do I need to get the rights of the subjects in my work? Although you do not need to send us a copy of release forms, we do suggest that you get them. If your work is chosen you will need to grant us the rights to reproduce the image or images for both our online and print publications, so you would most likely need to have these rights in place to protect yourself. Entrants that come back to us requesting we don’t run their winning work because they don’t have the rights will not be refunded for their entry. Note that student work is often exempt from copyright rules.
I’m a high school student. Can I enter? There are a limited number of categories available for high school students in the Student Awards. The rest of the categories are open only to post-secondary students attending college, university or other type of art school.
