2020 Art Prof Graduation Submission Form

Graduating students: we want to feature you during the live Art Prof 2020 Graduation: A Global Exhibition!

All graduating students from around the world in BFA, MFA,  BA or MA in studio art programs are invited to have their artworks + a short video featured in a live stream on Sunday, June 7 starting at 1pm EST on the Art Prof YouTube channel.

The live stream will also feature artists and professors from schools all over the world. See our list of speakers here.  Learn more about Art Prof here.

There is no fee to participate!

Eligibility

To participate, you must be enrolled in a BFA, MFA,  BA or MA in studio art program and be graduating this spring.  If you are graduating with a different degree that you think is still an appropriate fit for this event, please contact us.

We require you to provide an email address from the school you attend when you submit your materials.

We will accept students to be featured on a first come, first serve basis.

We are anticipating this live stream to be several hours long. While that means we will be able to feature many students, spots will fill quickly, so don’t delay your submission!

Please have your required information ready before you submit this form. We recommend writing your statement elsewhere first so that you have a copy of it.

Submissions will be accepted until Monday, May 25 @ 11:59pm EST.

Questions?  Please contact us.

-Prof Lieu


REQUIRED MATERIALS

5 high res images - OR up to 5 min. of video of your graduating work.
a video of you speaking. If you are extremely camera shy, you can send us an audio instead, although we strongly prefer to have a video. We will handle all the video editing; you only need to send us the raw video of you speaking.
a written statement that includes the same info as your video.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR SHOOTING YOUR VIDEO
Please watch the video at the top of this page for samples of what we are looking for. Questions?  Contact us.

Video must be shot horizontally.
Limit 2 min.
Record in a quiet room, preferably a small one that has rugs and is full. Avoid recording in a large space that echoes. If there is extra noise we won't be able to use your video. We will contact you to make another video if there is enough time.
Look at the camera when you speak if you can.
Begin by saying your name, degree, major, & school. Example:  "Hi!  I'm Sarah Smith, I'm graduating this year with my MFA in Painting from Boston University."
Next, briefly explain of 1) your creative process/art media/themes you work with, and 2) what you hope to do in the future as an artist.
Speak up, if the audio is too low we won't be able to use your video.
Shoot with good lighting. Natural light is best; shoot outdoors or by a window with diffused light. Try to have at least 3/4 of your face lit.
Do not read verbatim from a written statement. This tends to sound artificial and monotonous. Instead, write short bullet points and make up the exact words on the spot.
Do not add any music tracks to any of your videos. We can get a copyright strike on our YouTube channel if we use music tracks we do not own the rights to!
Speak with enthusiasm!  Speaking on video requires more perk than IRL.
