Young Artists & Authors Showcase


Norfolk Sister City Association

ANNUAL YOUNG ARTISTS/AUTHORS SHOWCASE

NSCA SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: April 3, 2020

The 2020 Theme: One World Out of Many, We are One

The Young Artists and Authors Showcase (YAAS) encourages youth from around the globe to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork, literature, film, and photography. Students from national and international sister city member communities interpret an annual theme and send their work to Washington, DC where a panel of judges selects Grand Prize Winners and Finalists based on originality, composition, and theme interpretation. After the finalists for art, literature, film, and photography are announced, the works go on a yearlong tour hosted by local sister city programs on a monthly basis, and the grand prize winners receive $1000 each.
