The FIRST EVER Digital Art Teacher Design Contest!

The FIRST EVER Digital Art Teacher Design Contest!

You are so awesome at teaching, motivating, and encouraging you students, that I thought it was about time to reward both student and teacher with a little gift. So...

for the first time ever,

we are offering a contest which will be open to the students of teachers who have purchased the Digital Art Teacher curriculum. To enter the contest, teachers will submit completed projects from the Typography Shape lesson. Both student and teacher of the winning design will receive a prize (design books, sketchbooks, pencil kits, see below!) which will be mailed to the recipients’ school on May 24th.

So here are your logistics (see below for a printable pdf including all of this information):

Format and Submissions:

  • Submissions must follow the instructions of the project page for the Typography Shape lesson.
  • Each teacher may submit up to TWO designs for his/her class.
  • Students may look at photographs or other art for ideas, but do not copy them.  We want to see creativity in the design! 
  • Send the submission as a JPEG- 10 MB or less in size.
  • All submissions must be school appropriate. Digital Art Teacher reserves the right to reject entries that are gratuitously violent, sexually suggestive, vulgar, or otherwise explicitly offensive.

To Enter:

Fill out the Entry Form online. If you submit more than one design, you’ll need to fill it out and submit it twice. You’ll receive an email confirmation.
