We are looking for all kinds of creative visual works, as long as it is original and created by a child between the ages of 3 and 13 years old. We will consider drawings, paintings, collage, made with ink paper, pen, pencil, paint, etc. We are looking more for selections that are unique and vibrant, rather than technically-well crafted. We will accept digital art. We will accept art with handwriting incorporated.

 

We will not consider: traced work, reproductions of other works (for example, Disney characters) coloring books.

Will the original artwork be modified?

Our goal is to present reproductions as true to the original as possible. The final artworks will be derivative digitized prints. Adjustments like cropping, colorization, and contrast may be done for better visibility and impact in a printed reproduction. The work will, in most cases, be enlarged for printing.
