Jurying will be in two parts:

Part 1: Identify artworks that are “distinguished” based on whether the art is informed by Ephesians 6:10-20, broadly defined. Phase 1 of the jurying will occur on a rolling basis as artworks are submitted. All artists with distinguished artworks will receive a page on the Engage Art site.

Part 2: Consider all “distinguished” artworks and rank them based on:

1. Ability to engage around the themes in Ephesians 6:10-20 and the degree of impact of the artwork on the audience (50%)

2. Artistic quality (50%)
a. creative interpretation
b. command of the medium used/technical skill

Jurying will be by a group of professionals and educators involved in the fields of visual art, music, filmmaking, ministry, and academia. We anticipate announcing the jury for the Carolinas Engage Art Contest in Spring 2018 and the jury for the International Contest in Spring 2019. Copyright remains with the artist.
