The artwork will be displayed in a Facebook album and Facebook members will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite image by selecting the Facebook "Like" button. The image with the most Facebook likes is announced as the favorite at the end of the challenge and showcased on both the DoDEA website and the DoDEA Facebook fan page.
Please view the Official Rules. Keep in mind that no more than ONE image per student may be entered per contest. No group submissions will be accepted. To enter the contest, email your submission to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your file size should be below 4MB or 4,000KB. Each submission must include the Permission/Entry Form and the Model Release Form (if necessary). The deadlines for submissions are posted below.

The Artist Spotlight Theme for April is “The Month of the Military Child.” For April submissions, we are including poetry as a creative choice to celebrate April as National Poetry Month. In honor of the 70th anniversary of DoDEA, students are encouraged to create an artwork in the form of a drawing, photo, 3D sculpture, or poem that showcases their pride as a military family member and/or as a DoDEA student. Submissions are due online by April 21. Voting will take place on April 22-27, with favorites announced on April 28.
DoDEA’s monthly favorite is chosen based on the highest number of Facebook likes. DoDEA students entering the contest are encouraged to share their entry with friends and family. Spread the word to increase the number of likes. We look forward to showcasing your artistic talents! Good Luck!
A talented artist is constantly learning his or her craft. Art takes hours of practice and perseverance, and you can always use tips to help improve your technique. Who knows, these Spotlight Tips might just make your artwork a DoDEA Favorite!
