Look at Me: High School Student Exhibition

October 11-18, 2014

Click here for an entry form.

Look at Me: Any self-portrait, image, or representation of oneself.

We are encouraging students from all Northwest Regional high schools to submit 2-dimensional works about how we represent our identity. For example, some students may want to discuss identity through social, cultural, economic, and gendered perspectives; as each of these elements plays a part in how we identify within constructs of family, community, and greater society.

Eligibility

The Look at Me Student Exhibition is free to enter and open to juniors and seniors across the Northwest Region. Students are welcome to submit one self-portrait each. These self-portraits must be original, and can be any media that can be exhibited on a 2-Dimensional surface.

Size Requirements

All images must be a maximum of 8"x10" mounted on an 11"x14" black mounting board. We recommend something similar to Dick Blick's Pure Black Presentation Boards, item number 13700-2005.

Deadline

All entries must be received by October 9, 2014.
