Entry forms should be submitted no later than Feb. 22. Artwork should be delivered to the library on March 1 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Current Northwestern students and employees, retired university employees and alumni may enter two items in each of the 30 categories available for this year’s show.

Prize ribbons will be awarded to all students and non-students winning first through third place in all categories, along with Best of Show and People’s Choice.

Artwork entered that does not fit any of the listed categories will be placed into a 31st category called Miscellaneous Artwork and will be judged together – regardless of the medium.

All art or concepts, including cartoon/comic characters, must be original to the artist. No kits, prints, photocopies, or previously submitted artwork will be allowed. No obscene language or references will be allowed. Any work deemed inappropriate by NAS and university standards will not be displayed.

Photography and coloring entries must be at minimum 5 inches by 7 inches in size that are matted or mounted – no frames. All fine art entries must include frames or be matted or mounted and ready to hang.

All artwork must have the title of work, category entered and artist’s name affixed in the upper right-hand corner on the back side of the piece. Three-dimensional work must also have this information attached to the piece.

Entry forms, category descriptions and rules are available online at

“Please read through the descriptions and rules we have provided on the web page,” Case added. “That information should help artists prepare their entries.

“Paying special attention to the presentation of artwork is highly recommended as it could mean a difference in judging the piece, and it has,” Case added.

A Winner’s Show is scheduled for April 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Runnymede in downtown Alva during its regular First Friday Artwalk events.
