Welcome to the 2024 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, gifs or animations, 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 29th, 2024.
What are the awards?
Our TechSmart staff will choose winning sprite artwork in each category, and those winners will have their artwork transformed into sprites. We will also choose a group of honorable mentions for other outstanding artwork.
The three categories for entry are:
- 2nd-5th grade
- 6th-8th grade
