2012 Humans in Space International Youth Art Competition Deadline Extended to November 15th

The Universities Space Research Association (USRA) invites youth worldwide ages 10–18 to share their visions of the future of space exploration by submitting visual, literary, musical, and video artwork to the 2012 Humans in Space Youth Art Competition. Due to worldwide request, the deadline for entries has been extended to November 15.

The competition partners (the German Aerospace Center, NASA, and USRA) challenge youth to communicate their vision of the future while incorporating this year’s theme: “How will humans use science and technology to explore space, and what mysteries will they uncover?” Competition judges will include program managers, scientists, artists, teachers, astronauts, musicians, and engineers from all over the world.

Winning artwork will be woven into multimedia displays and performances, providing opportunities for people of all ages to experience and be inspired by the creativity our next generation of explorers. Key venues for the 2012 winners will include the 19th Humans in Space Symposium of the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) in Cologne, Germany, in July 2013, and multiple events associated with NASA’s 50th Anniversary of Solar System Exploration celebration.

Information about background science, artwork guidelines, and how to enter the competition is available at http://www.humansinspaceart.org.

Submissions are electronic and are due November 15, 2012, 11:59 p.m. CDT (23:59 GMT -5).

A complete submission for youth artists will have:

o An entry form that includes:
o Submission and contact information
o Artist’s statement of originality (400 words or less)
o Artwork (rules for different genres provided on website)
o A waiver signed by a parent or guardian (or by the artist, if he/she is at least 18 years old).

Adults will have a chance to participate as well by volunteering as judges; more information is available under the “Call for Judges” tab on the website.

The competition is designed to enhance youth interest, knowledge, and engagement in space science and technology and to encourage young participants worldwide to use that knowledge creatively. Through the multimedia displays and performances of the artwork, viewers also become inspired about the future of space exploration.
