2011-2012 MLTI Screen Saver – Call For Photographs!

"Burst of Autumn", Erick Schadler, Grade 8, Jordan Small Middle School

Overview
During the last two years, the MLTI laptop screen saver image featured forty outstanding student works of art (twenty each year). Over 600 artworks were submitted and this opportunity once again is available for the 2011-2012 Screen Saver Image.

The students whose artwork is selected will be recognized at the MLTI Student Conference to be held in May 2011 at the University of Maine, Orono. The 20 artists will be receiving free Student Conference registration and will be invited to present an art related workshop session at the conference.

Works of art submitted will be on display in a Studywiz Gallery where students and teachers may vote for and critique the artworks. The two photographs receiving the most votes (stars) will automatically be entered into the group of 20 finalists. A group of independent judges will score the remaining photographs. The 18 artworks receiving top scores from the judges, will be submitted to the finalists group as well.

If you do not have a Studywiz account you will be issued an account to post the work. Please contact Juanita Dickson juanita.dickson@maine.gov to get an account.

This contest is open to Maine students in grades K-12. MLTI asks that students submit only ONE piece of artwork to be considered for the 2011-2012 screensaver.

  • Photography
  • Photographs of 2 or 3 dimensional artwork
  • Scanned works

Submissions must be:
