Jurying will be in two parts:

Part 1: On a rolling basis, our internal team will identify artworks that satisfy the entry requirements of the contest. These artworks will be given a place in our online gallery.

Part 2: Consider all the artworks added to our gallery during this contest and rate them based on:

Engage Art submissions will be juried by a group of distinguished artists and educators with overlapping expertise in a variety of visual and performing arts. These juries have both a practical and academic understanding of how the arts can assist in the Christian life and message as well as the range of ways that Christianity has been portrayed through the arts. They also have a deep understanding of the histories and current practices of the arts in secular culture. Juries will be advised by professionals in ministry and art history. We anticipate announcing the jury for the current Engage Art Contest in July 2021. Copyright remains with the artist.
