for Digital Submission of Artwork
Forms are generated by the online application after your entries are entered. Teachers should send each form to each parent or guardian to sign.
Each release form must be signed by the student's parent or guardian and the teacher.
Completed and signed forms must be submitted to the FAEA office no later than March 3. Fax: (850) 942-1793 or scan and email to email@example.com
Do not submit photos of the forms: if sending with your smartphone, use a scanner app instead. This will help ensure we are able to use the barcodes on the forms.
Late forms will not be accepted. Entries without a completed and signed release form on file in the FAEA office after March 3 will be disqualified without refund.
Each work of art submitted should be created exclusively by one student. Group projects are not supported, and 100% of the work must have been done by the student with no embellishment by the teacher, any other person, or artificial intelligence (AI).
FAEA is considering the possibility of adding a "film" category in the future, but at this time, submissions must be static photographs or digital images, not videos.
Artwork should be original and appropriate for a K-12 student exhibition. Works that are found to be plagiarized or generated by artificial intelligence (AI), or that depict violence, sexual activity, or any other subject that may be deemed inappropriate for students in grades K through 12, may be disqualified without refund at the discretion of the FAEA executive committee.
Failure to follow these guidelines and policies may result in any or all of a teacher's entries being disqualified.
The camera lens should be parallel to the artwork surface. Do not angle the lens as this distorts the image. Experiment with a variety of lighting to see what works best. Avoid camera flash back or images that are too dark. Fill the frame of the camera with the artwork. Do not allow school red brick to appear in the shot! For 2D artwork that will fit on a bed of a digital scanner, scan the image at 100%
Submit two images (different views) of three-dimensional artwork. Do not allow school red brick to appear in the shot. Consider using a black or white background.
FAEA asks that images are only altered in the following ways:
JPG should be captured by a 2+ megapixel camera. Set the camera for "fine" or "extra fine" resolution, not "web" or "normal." For photographs, participants may scan the print at 100% 300 dpi and save as a JPG file.
All submissions are entered online. You can pay instantly with a credit card or print an invoice to mail along with a check. If paying by check, the check must arrive in the FAEA office by the entry deadline.
