1. ABOUT THE THEME
This year's art show will feature artwork focused on new beginnings after the pandemic through the lens of youth. Specifically, we are inviting teen artists to reflect on:
What injustice did you see during the pandemic that you hope ends after the pandemic is over?
How did you become interested in this issue in a personal way?
What do our faith and Catholic social tradition say about it?
How can Catholic youth pave the path to a better future where this injustice no longer exists?
2. CRITERIA FOR ACCEPTED ARTWORK
Submissions must follow the theme as described above. While youth are encouraged to draw on their own ideas for creating a better future, the submitted artwork must explicitly reference scripture, the lives of the saints, and/or one of the seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching. Art will be reviewed according to the aforementioned criteria. As long as your art meets the criteria, you can submit more than one entry. That means more chances to win a prize! If selected, you will be notified by July 26th and your artwork will need to be delivered by July 31st at the latest.
3. ACCEPTABLE MEDIUMS/ART FORMS
All artwork must be able to be easily displayed on a wall, table, or projector. Specifically, acceptable mediums include, but not limited to...
Submissions that do not adhere to the theme, criteria, and Catholic teaching will be not be considered.
