Congressman Deutch is proud to announce that he will host “An Artistic Discovery” again this year.
What is it?
A 2-D art competition sponsored by the House of Representatives each year. Participating Members of Congress hold a competition to showcase the artistic talent of students who live in their districts. The winning piece is displayed for one year in an exhibit located in the Cannon tunnel at the U.S. Capitol.
In the past, the winner and one guest are invited to Washington, D.C. for a winners’ reception. We are waiting for details about this for 2021.
How does it work?
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the 2021 competition will be held virtually.
- To enter, students will need to submit two items: a high-resolution photo of their original work via email, and a Student Release Form (see below). Students are not permitted to collaborate on a piece; one student per submission.
- Expert judges from the Coral Springs Museum of Art will review the submissions and select a 1st/2nd/3rd place winner, as well as 2 honorable mentions.
- A gallery of the winning pieces will be featured on Rep. Deutch’s website and social media.
- Content: There is no official theme. Artwork must be original and not in violation of any copyright laws. Artwork must not depict material of a gruesome, sensational or controversial nature. Please take a few moments to review the official contest rules-see the link below. The winning piece must be framed by the student before it can be sent to Washington. If the winning piece exceeds the size and/or weight limit when framed, it cannot be accepted.
- All submissions must be less than 26 inches high x 26 inches wide x 4 inches deep, including framing. All submissions must weigh less than 15 pounds, including framing.
