Use your own artistic voice!

As artists and educators, the YPAE team believes in the importance of teaching students to honor the work of other artists. Understanding copyright and appropriation is a part of an arts education. 


We value originality above all else, and this means no awards can be given to work that is not your own. So before entering any work in a show, make sure it adheres to the plagiarism and copyright guidelines set forth by the NAEA Alliance of Young Artists and Writers.



Work that is submitted to the Young People’s Art Exhibition must be original work created by the student. If a submitted work is found to have been copied from another artist, the work will be removed from the exhibition and awards will be rescinded. 


Educators and students are responsible for educating themselves on copyright and plagiarism issues. This page is only a guide. There is no formula for creating an original work. 


The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers uses the following definitions for Copyright: 

Copyright is a form of legal protection prohibiting others from copying one’s creative work without permission. A copyright is a property right. Copyright law grants the creator of an original work the exclusive rights for its use and distribution. Even if you have permission to use a work or if the work is in the public domain, the work that you submit to an exhibition must represent a new, original work.

Radiant Aberration Juried shows

COPYRIGHT AND USE: All submitting artists retain the copyright to their images. Artists whose submissions are chosen for the gallery and online exhibitions grant Radiant Aberration and ZoneFIVE the specific right to use their images for the purpose of promoting the artist, events, exhibitions, and display on the program's website of current and past exhibitions, and social media. The artist’s recognition will be provided with any use. 


ELIGIBILITY: This call for entry is open to all artists, worldwide, regardless of experience level. We invite photographers working in all photographic mediums, digital, film, mixed, and alternative processes to participate. Please do not submit AI-derived images. 

Application Requirements: Submitting artists must own the copyright to images submitted. Submitting artists take full responsibility for the content of all images, including the likeness of recognizable individuals.

Notification of juror selections: Everyone who submits images will be notified by email of the juror’s selections. Selected images will also be posted at the same time on the exhibit’s web page. Notification is about 14 days after the exhibition closes for submissions.

Framing and printing: This service offered by Radiant Aberration. Who can print, mat, and frame your image at low cost. RA matting and framing services are available to anyone selected for the Exhibition Gallery, which will make exhibiting your work easy and inexpensive. RA can also print your images at a very reasonable cost. Of course, you are also welcome to ship a print, matted print (select sizes), or framed print as well. The choice is yours.


Shipping: Selected artwork may also be shipped by the artist. These pieces must be matted and framed in a simple black frame and be no larger than 24 inches on the longest side. Shipped artwork will need to arrive at ZoneFIVE Studios before the date specified in the call for entry.

Please note: we are unable to return work outside the U.S. and Canada. Having RA print, mat, and frame your work is by far the lowest-cost way to participate in this juried exhibition.
