High school students have until Jan. 31 to submit artwork.
In response to popular demand, Cleveland Institute of Art has extended the deadline for its second annual 2D3D high school art contest to midnight, Jan. 31.
“Given the high volume of submissions and inquiries coming in, we thought it might be advantageous to provide students an additional week to submit their best work,” said Mark A. Inglis, CIA’s vice president for marketing and communications.
High school students from as far away as California, Washington state, Texas, Utah, and Florida have submitted artwork to 2D3D, CIA’s national art and design contest. Winners will bring home cash prizes and thousands of dollars in scholarship offers.
To date, students from 262 high schools in 38 states have uploaded digital images and files of their work in four categories:
“We want to encourage students not to wait until the last minute to upload their work. They should allow enough time to ask any potential questions or address any upload issues,” Inglis said. “This is a great opportunity for students to showcase their creativity and think seriously about a career path in art or design.”
To be eligible, participants must be enrolled in a public, private, or parochial high school program that includes ninth, tenth, eleventh or twelfth grade, and must live in the United States. Judging by a panel of CIA faculty members is scheduled to take place from February 10-21; and the announcement and virtual online exhibition opening is scheduled for March 3.
