In the modern world populated with New Media and advancing technologies, it seems that old-fashioned letter writing has virtually disappeared from our everyday lives. Though we may not often write traditional ”snail-mail,” we do send messages to the world in other ways. E-mail, social networking sites, and smart phone applications give us the opportunity to keep in touch with friends, family members, corporations and mass audiences around the world.
The Sweetland Center for Writing is now accepting pieces of visual artwork that send your message to the world. Winning artwork will be reproduced in 18”x24” high-quality digital print, framed and exhibited in The Sweetland Center for Writing Angell Hall Peer Tutoring Center.
****Submit your largest and highest quality PDF file (to ensure a quality print!) of your piece to the Sweetland PT Program CTools site. Go to your Membership and click "Joinable Sites." Search for Sweetland PT Program and join. Go to the drop box option and upload your file in to the Art Contest Submissions folder. Please use the file name conventions: _lastname_title_PTC_art.pdf. If you have difficulty submitting this way, please email your PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*****Please fill out the following Google form.
**Submissions are due Friday November 4th by 5 PM. Notifications will be sent to winners via e-mail by Friday, December 2nd. Winners will receive a Starbucks gift card in addition to their artwork being displayed in the center for a year.**
Thank you for your participation and good luck!
