2016 International Student Art Contest Entry Period to Open in August

Written by: developer

The Space Foundation’s International Student Art Contest is back for 2016, and we invite student artists from around the world to participate. This will be the sixth year for the contest, with a new format for entering artwork.

The 2016 theme and details for entry will be released in mid-August. The contest features 25 winners, three from each age group (3-4; 5-6; 7-8; 9-10; 11-12; 13-14; 15-16 and 17-18) and one Space Foundation Achievement Award (see the 2015 winning artwork pictured right).

The 2015 International Student Art Contest received more than 3,600 entries from 53 countries 48 U.S. states and one U.S. territory.

The biggest difference in the contest this year will be the artwork submission process. All artwork will be submitted through a new website in order to streamline the judging. The website and entry information will be released at the same time as the theme in mid-August, allowing all participants an equal opportunity to create their masterpiece and submit it before the deadline. Winners will receive a prize, ribbon, astronaut autograph and a certificate. Get the crayons, colored pencils, paints, digital artwork software and all other artistic tools ready, this year is sure to be an exciting one! Watch for details mid-August at
