- No group work may be submitted.
- Maximum 3 entries per student. A campaign would be considered 1 entry (identity campaign, etc.) DISCLAIMER: In the event that wall space is filled before all interested participants have pinned, the event committee reserves the right to request that anyone pinning the max of 3 pieces be ready to reduce their number of entries, so that all interested participants are able to pin at least one entry.

- All work to be displayed must be 2D and no larger than 13x19”. 3D work/websites can be shown by photographs/printouts, but keep in mind that these should be high quality to best show your work.

Doors open at 6:30 PM. Students are responsible for bringing their work to Big Studio no later than 7:30 PM on January 25th. Pinning work will take place from 6:30-7:30 PM, judging will be from 7:30-8:30 PM, and the winners will be announced from 9:30-10 PM. Please write your name, email, school and phone # on the back of your piece. There should be no identifying information visible on the front. Must be present to win.
