Image of the art show flyerSubmissions should be based on your passion for environmental protection. Art submissions must be made by University of Delaware students (grad or undergrad) and must fall within the following four categories:

1. Still Art: painting, drawing, mural, sculpture
2. Photography and Graphic Design
3. Poetry: either slam/performance or written**
4. Video: creative or journalistic (between 3-5 minutes)

Submissions must be photographed, photocopied, linked or attached and sent to no later than Sunday, April 23.

The DENIN Ambassadors will select finalists and email results.

Top video submissions (YouTube or Vimeo) will be posted on the DENIN Facebook page, and then can be shared and liked until May 2nd at 11:59 p.m. (only from DENIN'S social media page). The two most popular videos will be played at the event for the audience.

For other categories, the top submissions of each category will be notified on April 26th of their acceptance into the show. The pieces must be brought by the artist to the event at 6:45 PM on the day of the event and taken home at the end of the event. The show will have raffle tickets for a democratically voted award system. The crowd will decide what pieces should win.

Download and share our flyer (jpeg, above right), designed by talented ambassador James Collins. Be sure to invite friends and classmates! All artists will be required to stay for the event.

And FINALLY! The top two of each of the four categories will win cash prizes!
1st Prize: $100
