The winners of the art contest will be determined through an assessment process utilizing a rubric that incorporates specific criteria. This rubric ensures transparency and consistency in judging the submissions.
The rubric will include the following criteria:
- Explanation Behind the Piece (Limit 150-200 words): This criterion assesses the clarity and depth of the artist’s explanation of their artwork. Judges will look for a thoughtful and concise description that effectively conveys the inspiration, meaning, and connection to the theme of consent. Artists will be encouraged to provide a compelling narrative that enhances the viewers’ understanding and engagement with the artwork.
- Submission Criteria: This criterion evaluates technical aspects of the submission, such as adherence to submission guidelines, file quality, and clarity. Artists will be expected to meet the specified requirements to ensure fair evaluation and consistency in reviewing the submissions.
- Alignment with Theme: This criterion examines how well the artwork reflects and interprets the theme of consent. Judges will consider the clarity, relevance, and creativity with which the concept of consent is conveyed through the artistic expression. Artworks that effectively capture the essence of consent and provoke meaningful reflections will score higher in this category.
- Overall Impression/ “Fan Choice”: This criterion takes into account the overall impact and impression of the artwork on the judges and viewers. It encompasses the visual appeal, artistic technique, creativity, and emotional resonance of the piece. Additionally, a designated number of months in the calendar will be reserved for “People’s Choice.” This means that a group of students will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite artworks among the entries, providing an inclusive element where the preferences of the student community are considered.
By utilizing this rubric, the judging process ensures a comprehensive evaluation of each artwork based on a range of criteria. It combines objective assessment of technical aspects, alignment with the theme, and subjective appreciation of the overall impact. The incorporation of “People’s Choice” months further engages the student community, giving them a voice in selecting artworks that resonate with them.
Through this balanced approach, the art contest aims to recognize exceptional pieces that effectively communicate the message of consent while also valuing the perspectives and preferences of the students.
