Open to all Orange and Sullivan County 6-12 Grade Students.
Fearless! invites artists of all kinds from grades 6-12 to join us in promoting healthy relationships and creating change. 1 out of every 3 teens is impacted by dating violence before the age of 18, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or any other social identity. Types of dating violence include emotional/mental, verbal, financial, technological, physical, and sexual abuse.
Submission Deadline: February 2, 2024
This year's theme is "Redefining the Fairytale." Explore your modern-day fairytale and challenge societal expectations. Submissions will be accepted in three categories: visual art, written art, and performative art. Entries will be judged based on creativity, personal vision and voice, skill, originality, and depth of understanding for healthy vs. abusive relationships. Please review the requirements for further details and refer to the rubric that judges will use for scoring. Students may submit one piece in a single category.
Accepted mediums include paintings, drawings, collages, prints, mixed media, computer-generated art, photographs, and videos. Join us in redefining romance through art! Participants must review the guidelines and submit all artwork with a completed entry form.
1st place winners for both the 9th-12th grade category and the 6th-8th grade category will receive prizes.
All winners will have a letter of recognition and appreciation sent to their schools. The winning artwork will be on display at Fearless!’s Newburgh office location, and the artwork of the first-place winners in the 9th-12th grade category will be published in Fearless! materials throughout the year.
