Student Art Contest 2019 Entry Forms & Instructions
Entry Forms for the Student Art Contest at the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts should be submitted electronically (download the PDF form below) AND in hard copy form along with the artwork. Please read the following guidelines before submitting entry forms.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Who needs to submit entry forms? Entry Forms must be submitted for every piece of artwork that will be delivered to the Pearl for Final Adjudication (judging). Please note that most students’ artwork will first be submitted to the school or school district for pre-adjudication, and only the resulting selections are delivered to the museum for Final Adjudication.
Art teachers – Your school district administrator may require you to use the museum’s entry forms to facilitate their pre-adjudication process, in which case forms will be submitted for entries that may not advance to the Final Adjudication stage.
Public Schools: Each public school district may submit up to 25 entries. The district is responsible for adjudicating their students’ work (from all campuses) first in order to arrive at the maximum of 25 entries. The district may determine the number of entries per school division as long as the total number of submissions to the museum is 25 or less.
Private Schools and Home School Students: Each home school teacher and private school may submit up to 20 entries; forms should be submitted for all 20 entries. Private and Home School artwork submissions will then be pre-adjudicated by the contest judges, and up to 25 entries from the combined Private and Home School ‘District’ will go on to be judged in Final Adjudication.
When should entry forms be submitted? Forms must be submitted electronically before delivery of the artwork to the Pearl for Final Adjudication. The deadline for electronic form submission is March 25, 2019. Hard copies of the forms should also be printed by this date and given to the school or district administrator* responsible for delivering the artwork to the Pearl the following week.
*Administrators should contact Sylvia de Hek prior to March 25, 2019 to schedule an appointment for delivering artwork: firstname.lastname@example.org.
