Digital art prints must be made from the artist’s original digital file under the artist’s supervision.

•Mixed Media 2-D: All original work that is intended to hang on the wall and incorporates more than one type of physical material. PLEASE NOTE: Utilizing a different medium as an under painting or in a minor secondary role does not meet the intention of this category. Materials that are used must be evident in the finished work.

Prints made from negatives, transparencies or digital files and manipulated with computer programs and printed on large scale ink-jet printers are included here. Works may also be collages or assemblages of photographs, made by the artist. The photographic process must be displayed and each edition must be signed and numbered. Digital photographers, i.e., those who use a digital camera or process images digitally to perform standard manipulations, (e.g., cropping, color/tone adjustment, sharpening, etc.), should apply to the Photography category, not Digital Art.
•Printmaking, Graphics and Drawing: This includes prints that are hand pulled by artists from traditional methods, including etching, engraving, silkscreen, stone and plate lithography, linoleum block or woodcut. This also includes drawings on paper using dry media such as pencil, crayon, charcoal, pastels and a variety of other marking media or from fluid medium of inks and washes applied by pen or brush.
