I’ve been researching art competitions for my students, and came across this one – the Picasso Art Contest.
Entry is FREE to any 6 – 19 year olds from any country. Entry is open until 25th February 2016.
They accept nearly any kind of medium (except digital art) including
- Water Color
- Oil Color
- Colored Pencils
- Pen & Ink
- Ball Point Pen
- Mixed Media etc
Any subject, any size is acceptable (except adult themed works, or copyrighted material)
The BEST PART is you can enter online. These are the entry details:
Step ONE: Take a clear digital photo of your mini-artists artwork. IT MUST BE CLEARLY SIGNED with the artists full name in handwriting that is legible.
Step TWO: Send your mini-artists artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org include on the email your mini-artists NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, AGE, STATE, COUNTRY. The email subject should be: “Entry for Season 1”
Be aware! There are some reasons your mini-artist will be disqualified. These are:
- signature not clear on artwork
- artwork contains objectionable subject matter or copyrighted material
- Name, DOB, age, State, country information is not in the email
- online form not filled in
- image is not clear
- the artwork was sent many times
Entry is only open until 25th February 2016, so now is the time to start organising your mini-artist for their entry. I know many of my students already have pieces that would be fantastic entries into this competition.
Here’s the link to the website once more, just in case you missed it:
Happy entering and good luck!!
