We want to make sure you are aware of a small change in the Engage Art Contest. Due to the recent discovery of a glitch in the Engage Art app, we have eliminated app participation from the scoring rubric. However, downloading the Engage Art app is now part of the requirement to be able to have an entry juried in the contest and included on the Engage Art website.

Please understand that if you do not establish an Engage Art App account by the contest deadline (June 30, 2020) and keep it active through the jurying period (October 2020), then your entry will not be considered by the jury, you will not be considered for cash prizes, nor will your entry become an ongoing part of our online gallery.

Here is how the scoring in each category will now break down:
