Additional Information

Deliver artwork to Benedictine University on February 28-29. Your artwork must be physically delivered to campus to be considered for the prizes. BenU Mesa will hang your artwork. 

The Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony will take place on Saturday, March 7 starting at 3:00 p.m. We strongly encourage you to attend as the prize winners will be announced. Food and beverages will be provided. Dress is business casual. You may bring as many guests as you wish. 

Digital files or photos should be printed in hard copy form. The size of the photos should be chosen by the artist to correspond to their intentions, however, printing at larger scale tends to get a greater notice from judges. Therefore, we suggest that photographers print their work as large as possible without losing picture quality. We encourage all 2D work to be matted, mounted to a board, or framed, for its own protection, If work is not matted, it will be displayed using pins to pinch it to the wall. This will not create holes in the work.
