Student Art Competition

The State Botanical Garden of Georgia at the University of Georgia Student Art Competition is funded by The J.A. and H.G. Woodruff, Jr. Charitable Trust.

This competition is sponsored to select original artwork that may be used to create signature items for sale at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia gift shop, such as note cards, T-shirts, scarves and mugs. Winning artwork may also be used on the garden website, brochures and promotional materials. The judges will consider creative concepts for how the artwork might be used, as well as the reproducibility of the design, how usable the design is to create gift shop items, and how well the design represents the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. For example, a photograph or painting of a Southwestern landscape, beach scene or urban architecture would not represent the garden and not likely be considered as a winner.

All entrants submitting artwork must be in 9th grade and above (including college students) attending school full or part-time in Georgia. Prizes include $1,000 for 1st place, $500 for 2nd place and $250 for 3rd place.

PDF and JPG submissions are accepted. The maximum allowed file size for uploads is 10240 KB.

The deadline for the 2023 Student Art Competition is March 31.
