Gage Season StARTer OFFICIAL T-Shirt Design SUBMISSION FORM

ARTWORK SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Sunday, September 6th 2020, 9:00pm PST

For the first time ever, Gage is holding a t-shirt design contest! To go along with the annual Gage Season StARTer event (now virtual), we invite artists of all ages and backgrounds to submit a design for the contest. 

The theme of this year’s event is HogwARTs Academy: Choose-Your-Own-Path Online Art Adventure! Throughout the journey, artists will create a magical scene alongside the art guidance from their favorite Gage instructors. BUT- along the way, there will be a villain that will try to distract the artist from completing their creative journey!

This is where you come in! Help us design the official HogwARTs Academy VILLAIN. Use your creativity, imagination, and get inspired from some of your favorite characters such as the Joker, Darth Vader, or He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. You may use any medium to paint, draw, or sculpt the villain, as long as the design is an original piece of artwork by YOU. The final submission should be uploaded as a high-res .jpeg or .png image file (we recommend scanning the design on a printer/scanner if the work is 2D).

The winning design (chosen by the staff at Gage Academy of Art) will be the featured character throughout the Gage Season StARTer event. The winner will be announced on the GSS Event Page (https://www.gageacademy.org/hogwarts-academy/) and Gage Instagram (@gageacademy) on Thursday, September 10th. The design will also be screen-printed on the Official 2020 GSS T-Shirt, which will be distributed to some lucky students after the event. The winning artist will also receive an Ultimate Artist’s Supply Kit, filled with back-to-school tools and materials you will need to continue on your artist journey.

So get those creative magic hats on, and start working on your design today!! Submissions are due on Sunday, September 6th at 9:00pm PST.

Best of luck!!
