GUIDELINES FOR MAKING ART TO SUBMIT:
— Artwork must be original works of art made by children – K-12
— Family collections will be considered if children’s art predominates
— Content must be appropriate for all ages –
— Artwork must be square or it will be automatically by cropped
— Original artwork should be about 6” x 6”
— Artwork and backgrounds should fill the square entirely, with very little “negative” (white) space
— Best mediums are markers, chalk pastel, oil crayon, watercolor, or colored pencil
— Very fine detail is lost – keep your designs bold
— Strong contrast between subject and background is most successful
— No photographs allowed
— Collections must contain 12 usable and acceptable images.
— Names and ages are proper credits. Even grownups!
— Multiple game submissions are ok.
How to Photograph your 12 Artworks:
Take a phone photo of each individual piece of art:
— Current smart phone photos work fine.
— Photos must be clear & well lit.
— When you photograph your art, get in close enough to so the entire artwork fills the screen.
— Make sure you don’t cast a shadow.
— Focus the camera on the center of the artwork.
— Snap the picture. Take several but only upload the clearest and best.
— Each piece of art needs its own photo.
— Photos may take a few minutes to load.
