An Important Message to all Artists
with paintings listed below
The Curator needs a JPG Head and Shoulders Image of you (Passport type photograph), this is for the Exhibition Catalogue and the description to be attached to each work of art when displayed at the Contest Exhibition. I need this by mid December.
Please email your photograph - and also attach as text in your email a short biography about yourself, perhaps 50 or more words would be OK.

The Artworks featured in the banner above
are selections from the 2007 contest entries.
The RotoArt International High School Student Art Contest
enjoys the support of many Rotarians in a number of the 35,000 Rotary Clubs
across the World, it is an initiative of the RotoArt Charitable Trust, Hamilton, New Zealand
but is not a project of Rotary International.
The contest in 2007 brought a wide range of outstanding entries from across 23 countries. The contest permits visual art of any subject on a variety of mediums.
Some of the 2007 international entries are illustrated here.
Cameroon England USA
After the 2012/13 contest closes the 3 judges will have access to all of the uploaded images in a hidden section of our website.
In their own time at any computer location the judges are able to grade each entry on a scale of 1 to 10.
When each judge has completed grading, the entire entry field is averaged and the Chief Judge and the Curator meet to decide on calling original works to come forward for "live" judging by the panel.
At this stage the Curator who will have had close contact with many of the entrants, is excluded from further decision making.
In the 2012/13 contest the 40 entries that are selected for final judging will be shown at the Awards Ceremony in Hamilton during February 2014 and will be on exhibition for sale with the proceeds going to the student artists.
The exhibition will be shown at several venues during 2014. Art that is not sold and not retrieved by the artists will be donated to hospitals and youth organisations.
New Zealand and Cook Islands entrants compete
to win an art related 21 day trip to the USA
Overseas students compete for a 21 day trip to New Zealand plus cash prizes
