license to reproduce images of your artwork.  (on this website and in our
newsletters...with credit and links to you.)

anyone else's copyrighted material.  

Judging

- Our site administrator & 2 independent Gulf Coast artists (3 judges) will
narrow the entries to ten finalists & be placed on our site for a  10 day viewer
vote to determine the winners.  
(We believe a 'viewer vote" encourages the
community to interact with local art & artists creating new art buyers &
further promoting the art of the finalists).
 

Judges:  
Jennifer Saucier-Googins, MS. Two more to be announced.

Presentation:  Your images represent your art.  Please make sure they are
clear and cropped to include only the art

Originality:  Show us and the Coast something only you could create.

Theme:  The placement or arrangement of visual elements or ingredients in a
wok of art or a photograph, as distinct from the subject of a work.

Landscapes ~ Cityscapes ~ Seascapes
We are looking for images of the beautiful Gulf Coast states to incorporate in to the design of our site.
(No abstract or 3-d art please.)   We want to bring attention to the many facets of our region and give
site users visuals  of the wide variety of scenes, not just beaches, that make up the Gulf South.  From
old farm houses & shrimp boats  to glowing night time cityscapes there's an endless supply of scenes
just waiting for your art to capture.
