Judging Criteria


What are you communicating?

The theme of this competition is What is your vision for 2021? While we have identified a theme, it is completely up to you what the style and format of your vision board is. Consider what your goals, dreams, hopes, and aspirations are for 2021. How do you want to change and grow? What does 2021 have in store for you? 


Is this your own work?

While it is fine to be inspired by other artists, it is not okay to take their ideas and represent them as your own. Further, creating original, unique, and interesting artwork is fun! Originality is one of our criteria, and your submission must be the product of your own talent, imagination, and skill. It is OK to use photos or text you find online, but the vision board final product must be unique. 


Make a masterpiece!

Vision boards can be as simple as writing on a piece of paper or marker on a white board, but we encourage you to devote some time and talent to a vision board that is artistically creative! You can use any medium and format to make your board- wow us with your art!

What is a Vision Board?

“A vision board is a visualization tool which refers to a board of any sort used to build a collage of words and pictures that represent your goals and dreams.” – Jack Canfield

A vision board is a visual representation of your VISION (or plan!) for the future! It is early in 2021, and now is the perfect time to think about what we want this year to look like and how we are going to make that happen. A vision board is also a great visual reminder to ourselves of who we want to be this year to keep us on track toward our goals. Usually vision boards are made on poster board, paper, or cork-board, but we will allow digital creations for this competition because it might be tough to get physical materials. Check out the video or the samples below for some inspiration!
