Congressional Art Competition Guidelines
Below is a letter from Congressman George Miller's office.
Dear Student Artists/Teachers,
Congressman Miller invites all High School artists within the 11th Congressional District to consider also participating in the 2014 Congressional Art Competition! If you are interested in submitting your Peace Center art work to the Congressional Competition as well, please complete this waiver form and attach it to the back side of your artwork.
Each entry must be an original concept, design and execution and may not violate any U.S. copyright laws. Artwork mediums are as follows; oil, acrylics, watercolor, pencil, charcoal, ink, marker, pastels, collage, prints, lithographs, silkscreen, block prints, computer generated art, photography and mixed media. Each piece may be no larger than 28" x 28" x 4" and cannot weigh more than 15 pounds. Artwork does NOT need to be framed for consideration.
Artwork is due in the Concord District Office the week of April 14 and will be judged by an independent panel. The Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center has made arrangements with this office to accommodate judging schedules for both competitions. Arrangements for transport of the art submissions between the Center and the Concord office have also been made.
The winner's artwork will be shipped to Washington DC and will hang in the Cannon Tunnel for one year. The winner and one family member will be flown to Washington DC, courtesy of Southwest Airlines, to participate in the official Congressional Art Competition Reception in June. As if that wasn't exciting enough-the winner also has the opportunity to compete for an art scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. Please contact Adrienne Ursino for specific details, Adrienne.Ursino@mail.house.gov (925) 602-1880.
