Art Contest for Juniors and Seniors!
Distributed in October each year, Creative Outlook helps students become informed as to what accredited art programs and schools can be found to pursue a secondary degree in the arts. The magazine and accompanying website at www.creative-outlook.com, helps high school junior and senior art students search for art majors, art careers, scholarships and a future accredited art college or university to attend.
To increase readership and build a student art community, the staff at Creative Outlook Magazine offers a Cover Contest. The 2013 issue marks the third contest. Artwork can be submitted and shared online. Students share their artwork with family and friends via e-mail and social media accounts to receive user votes. The top 10 submissions with the most votes will be reviewed by a panel of higher education panel of judges for art colleges and universities. The first place winner receives a $250 scholarship, artwork on the cover, a biography inside the magazine, plus inclusion on the Creative Outlook website. Second and third places also receive $250, artwork and biography inside the magazine, plus on the web. High school and college students can submit their entry to www.creative-outlook.com.
Last year, Creative Outlook received more than 900 online art submissions representing student artists from 314 high schools and colleges throughout the United States. There were 37,000 votes for the artwork and more than 160,000 page views. The staff has been humbled for the past two years by the high level of talent and skill and expects to see even more excellent student artwork from around the nation.
Along with the cover contest, the staff has also introduced the 1st Creative Outlook Art Teacher of the Year Award. As with the cover contest, the art teacher nominations can be submitted online at www.creative-outlook.com and promoted via social media. Students can offer their best stories as to how their art teachers have motivated, inspired and encouraged them to be their best. In return, the top art teacher will receive a $250 gift that can be used for the fine arts department in their school, a feature in the magazine and on the web.
The contest for both the Creative Outlook Cover Contest and Art Teacher of the Year ends Sept. 1, 2013. For advertising inquiries in the magazine and on the website email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
