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work is found to have been copied from another artist, the work will be removed from the exhibition and awards will be rescinded.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.
