Reflect on the 2018-2019 Theme: Heroes Around Me
An explanation of the art form might be a useful addition to the artist
statement. Whether an entry displays use of formal technique or a simple
approach, it will be judged primarily on how well the student uses his or
her artistic vision to portray the theme, originality and creativity.
Copyright: Use of copyrighted material, including any copyrighted
cartoon characters or likeness thereof, is not acceptable in any visual arts
submission, with the following exceptions:
• Visual artwork may include public places, well-known products,
trademarks or certain other copyrighted material as long as that
copyrighted material is incidental to the subject matter of the piece
and/or is a smaller element of a whole. The resulting work cannot try
to establish an association between the student and the
trademark/business/material, or influence the purchase/non-purchase
of the trademarked good.
• Visual arts collages may include portions of existing copyrighted
works, such as photographs, magazine clippings, internet images and
type cut out of a newspaper, as long as those portions of copyrighted
works are used to create a completely new and different work of art.
