General Information

The Teen Arts Festival aims to provide the opportunity to celebrate uniquely talented students from your school. In keeping with this year’s theme “Art for Change”, we welcome exhibits of non-traditional descriptions in our critiqued events categories and can include submissions of 2D, 3D, models, photography, video, or animation.

Please send us a digital copy of your work to be featured on our website!

All submissions must consider our theme “Art for Change” as a guide for expression.

Please complete and submit the appropriate Art and Design Submission Form (available on February 1) not later than APRIL 29, 2022.

The registration must be sent by an official representative from the participating school including individual instructors of students, but not by the students themselves, all work must be suitable for public exhibition.

Schools may submit one piece to multiple categories i.e. art and design, performing, dance, creative writing, etc.

Submission Criteria

All submissions are digital.

Once you register, your school will be sent a link for uploading individual student artwork.

All files must be named according to the following conventions:

last name_first initial-High School name

example: Smith_J-MiamiCoralPark

In addition, each school will compose a PowerPoint presentation with simple transitions, of all artworks submitted by students in that school. Rather than printing and displaying physical pieces, these PowerPoints will be displayed via monitors throughout the campus on the day of the festival.

A written critique will be mailed to the participating school after the festival, along with ranking for referral to the state level.
