The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is holding a moon-sized art contest for high-school and college students. The challenge is to submit an original work on the theme: Life and Work on the Moon.
"Crater Core Sample" by Zachary Madere, Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design, Lakewood, CO (2009 Best Overall Score, College)
Art, industrial design, architecture, computer design and the fine arts are encouraged as entries, and this year, poetry and short stories are also welcome. Art students are encouraged to collaborate with science and engineering students on their projects to make sure their works are "valid for the Moon's harsh environment."
Entries may be two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and digital, including music and video. The complete instructions indicate the size limits for each format. There will be cash prizes, certificates of achievement and exhibit opportunities; however foreign entries will not be eligible for the cash prizes.
