Selection, Judging Process, and Rubrics

Adjudication will take place in March, and results will be sent out in April. The judging process is conducted virtually by a minimum of three judges who have received FAEA training in scoring artworks for exhibition. The jurors work independently of each other. All entries are adjudicated "blind" by the judges (artist name, school, and district are not visible to the judges). 

Selection criteria is based on these 4-point rubrics:

Entries that receive an "Award of Excellence with Distinction" are featured in a virtual exhibition that highlights all artworks awarded with a perfect score.  Entries who received an "Award of Excellence" or an "Award of Excellence with Distinction" have their artwork in their school division's virtual exhibition (Elementary, Middle School, High School).
