ELIGIBILITY
Students must be majoring in programs in the PSU School of Art + Design and

must be willing and able to display and help install their work at the
exhibit held in their honor during Fall term 2015. Please note that this
applies to all A+D students creating visual work, not just those pursuing
an undergraduate major or MFA in Art Practice.

JUDGING
A jury consisting of School of Art + Design faculty and professionals from
the visual arts community in the region will judge the submissions and
identify the winners. Three awards will be made, though the jury can, at
its discretion, decide to not make awards should they determine that none
of the entries merit the recognition.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
Entries are due on or before Monday April 13, 2015

All submissions will be via *pdx.slideroom.com <http://pdx.slideroom.com>*;
$10 fee to Slideroom required.

media and concept you are exploring. This could include process, purpose,
intention and your own academic and professional goals.

c) Upload up to 7 images. An “image” presents a single work. Up to three of
the 7 images can be video or audio clips of no more than 90 seconds. Each
clip must be a single work, or taken from a single work.
Multiple works presented within an image will cause that image to be
disqualified. Exceptions: if one of the presented works is a cohesive

one of the presented works is a designed campaign or packaging series or
design system, then an image of no more than 4 pieces and one detail image
