NASA Space Art Contest – The Moon: Back to the Future
Just Another Moon
The NASA Advanced Planning and Partnership Office at Langley Research Center is sponsoring a space art contest for college students. The theme for this art contest is Life and Work on the Moon. NASA is accepting submissions in three categories: two-dimensional, three-dimensional and digital. I find it interesting that the contest organizers have chosen to distinguish between traditional and digital two-dimensional art. I have sent a letter to the contest contact inquiring about the reason for this distinction. I am guessing that the distinction is a result of the file size limitation imposed on original digital art.
The contest opens in October, accepts submissions up to December 1, with the winners announced in either January or February 2008 – with the web site indicating January but the news release indicating February. The winning art will be displayed online and in NASA facilities and museums around the country. The top cash award is listed as $1,000.00 with additional smaller cash prizes for each of the categories.
