Competition Guidelines

Incorporate the New Scent – Doctor Aromas will provide, at the Competition Presentation & Seminar as described below, the new Scent for use by each student in their artwork. The new Scent must be present and recognizable in each artwork created during the viewing by Judges and during the Competition Exhibition and Reception.

Art Materials students will incorporate their own materials for use in their artwork. Doctor Aromas Foundation will provide all students registered in our Visual Arts Scholarship Competition with a bag of different materials on which the scent can be applied and used in their artwork. The use of these materials is optional. However, using the new scent created by Doctor Aromas is required.

Maximum Size – the maximum size for bi-dimensional pieces is 40 in. x 48 in. Volumetric pieces cannot weight over 25 lbs. nor have a base of more than 20 by 20 inches or be taller than 4 ft.

Collective work and multiple entries – we do accept collective work, however if granted an award to for artwork created by a collective group of student artists, the award money will be split into equal parts. Multiple entries by the same student or group will not be accepted.

Original Thinking – the art work submitted should demonstrate original thinking, artistic commitment, and a willingness to take creative risks. While it is expected that the student will consult with their teachers, they are urged to submit work they feel best represent their own personal creative interests based on the theme of this competition and considering that is work done outside of class.

Intellectual Property and Copyright Requirements All submitted art work must be wholly original and may not infringe upon the copyright or other intellectual property or other legal or moral rights of any other person or entity. If the student work has been submitted to other competitions, they are responsible for getting permission to submit the same piece to Doctor Aromas’ competition.

Awarding prices Judges don’t need to award all or any prizes if they deem the entries are lacking sufficient merit; judges may award no more than three prizes total.
