Student Art Contest: The World at Cornell

Enter our contest for a $100 Cornell Store gift card and the chance to see your work displayed on Olin Library’s first-floor elevator doors!

To be considered, submit one or more high-resolution images, along with a supporting paragraph, around the theme of THE WORLD AT CORNELL.

We’ll consider photographs, original artwork or images originating from your research. The supporting paragraph should explain your goal in creating this and how it relates to “The World at Cornell” theme.

Deadline: Feb. 20, 2018. Winners will be chosen by March 1.

Who’s eligible? Any current Cornell undergraduate or graduate student.

Technical specifications: Final size of the image installation is 80” x 36” portrait orientation. For a high-quality image of that size you will need to provide either a PDF, EPS, AI, or SVG (vector) file or a very high-resolution JPEG, TIFF, or PSD (raster) file larger than 20 MB.

Note: If your image is a photograph, please provide the location (city, country, and landmark). Consideration will be given, in part, to the location where the photograph was taken and any legal restrictions on the use of images of individuals from that location.
