Artwork Contest

Celebration ’14, the Annual Colloquium on Undergraduate Research, Creative Activity, and Community Engagement, wishes to announce a call for original artwork to depict this year’s theme decided upon by the Planning Committee:  Beyond Curiosity.  This artwork could consist of photographs, sculptures, paintings, or drawings. The Committee chose a theme that they believe could be broadly interpreted by the artist. The ideal submission will be a photograph or a photograph of a piece of art that represents Beyond Curiosity achieved by students through engaging in faculty-mentored research, creative activity, or community outreach projects.

The student who submits the winning entry (only one submission per student will be considered) will have his/her photo featured on the Celebration ’14 program cover and in the event’s publicity materials. In addition, a $150 gift card from will be awarded. 

To submit, please email a jpg attachment to with “Celebration Photo Contest” in the subject line. Please send the largest version of the image, as the image should be 8.5” x 11” in size to fit as a background for the cover.

In addition to the photograph, each entry must also include a paragraph in the text of the e-mail which describes what is depicted and how it relates to this year’s theme of “Beyond Curiosity.”
