    Can you please clearify what categories of “Artwork” are acceptable. (example: hand drawing, paintings, computer based drawings (are special effects allowed etc… and photography)
    Does the Artwork need to be matted and framed for submission?
    Thank You!

      Hi Good morning,
      The “Artwork” can be anything hand-made, such as painting, coloring, cut & paste or craft. For this event we are not accepting photographs. The artwork can be brought in its original form, without framing or lamination.

      Thank you for making me think on adding these details in the rules of the contest,
