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.
  • the entry satisfies all the eligibility requirements.

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.
