Submission Guidelines for The President's Art Exhibit at Embry-Riddle

Who Can Submit?

Any Embry-Riddle employee, alum, student, or student group is invited to submit a work of art in any appropriate medium. Immediate family members may also participate. Artwork must be of size that can be displayed on an easel or small table. If a stand is necessary, the contributing artist must provide such. A committee will evaluate the artwork and evaluate whether or not it can be included part of the art show. Once the work of art has been accepted and placed on display, each art show visitor will have the opportunity to vote on the top ten works using a smart phone. The final rankings will be decided by this vote.

Each artist may display up to two approved art pieces. The number of accepted pieces will be based on availability in the location after all submissions have been reviewed

The top ten submissions will be recognized.

Monetary prizes will be awarded for the top three:

  • First place - $500.00
  • Second place - $250.00
  • Third place - $150.00

Fourth through tenth places will receive an honorable mention.
