The Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Art Contest, one of the most pressing art competitions for students facing the ocean, has been recently opened for entries for 2019 inviting middle and high school students from around the world to participate.
Climate change is the biggest issue of your lifetime. Your whole life will be lived as the impacts of global climate change are taking place. Our Contest is a call for young artists, thinkers, and activists who are concerned about the future of our human and natural communities to use their creative voices to explore, express, and advocate for issues related to climate change and our oceans.
The 2019 Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Art Contest this year is themed "Presence of Future".
Climate change requires that we think about the past, present, and future simultaneously. Because of earlier human actions, our ocean is facing real and imminent threats today; our every action—or inaction—now impacts the future of our communities and our blue planet. The effects of climate change are not something that will happen to faraway generations—it is happening now; it is happening to us. What do we stand to lose? What can we gain from learning from our past and taking steps now to create a sustainable and just future?
What they searching for?
Participants are invited to create a piece about a coastal/marine species, place, or system that will be threatened, altered, or lost due to climate change. From organism to ecosystem, what are the impacts of climate change on our ocean?
Works of visual art, poetry, prose, film, and music can be entered.
Each category is judged separately, and each category will have its own Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Honorable Mention winners.
Submissions are judged based on:
• How well they address the annual theme of the Contest
• Artistic voice, originality, and imagination
• Craftsmanship, including quality, technique, attention to detail, and accuracy of communicating issues
• Meeting the Contest submission requirements (such as length, file type, etc.)
There is no entry fee for to participate!
It's free to enter!
Students from around the world are invited to participate.
More than $5,000 will be awarded in 2019, in total. Gold, Silver and Bronze Award winners, as well as Honorable Mention winners will be announced in each contest division. Several other special awards will be announced as well.
