Welcome to the 2023 TechSmart Art Contest!
How does it work?
Past and current TechSmart students can create artwork that can be transformed into a sprite in the TechSmart platform. As a reminder, a sprite is computer graphic that can be moved on screen. You can submit any kind of sprite idea - realistic or fanciful, people or objects, etc.
If your artwork is chosen by TechSmart staff, our artist Heewon will transform your design into a sprite that will be available in the TechSmart Sprite Library for everyone across the country to use!
What kind of art can I submit?
You can create your art in any medium - if it's on paper, you can just take a picture of your artwork and submit a photo.
What is not allowed? - Sprite Sheets, Backgrounds, any image that you did not create yourself, or any artwork that has clear likeness to existing intellectual property (eg. Pokemon, Minecraft, etc.).
How do I submit my artwork?
Complete the form at bit.ly/ts-artcontest. The deadline is March 31st, 2023.
