Once you have registered, you will receive an email asking you to confirm your account. Artwork will not be accepted and logins will not function until you have confirmed your account via a valid email address. If you do not see a confirmation email within 10 minutes after registering, be sure to check your spam box in case the confirmation email was delivered there. Accounts that are not confirmed within 72 hours will automatically be cleared from the system, requiring you to re-register.

All artwork must be submitted as a digital file, saved in either .jpg or .png format. Files must be no larger than 10MB in size. File dimensions must be at least 2,400 pixels wide by 2,400 pixels tall. Note: The image does not need to be square. The narrowest measurement must meet the minimum size requirements.

We'll also need your student's first name only, age range, country, and state or province for each submitted piece of art.

Submit Student Artwork

Go to the Artwork Submission page to upload your student's art.

We review each piece of art before it is published on the website. This process could take up to three (3) days (72 hours) to complete. Check the "My Uploads" page to see if your submitted entries have been approved.
