WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02) announced today that his office is accepting submissions from high school artists across South Jersey for the 2014 Congressional Art Competition hosted by the House of Representatives.

“I am pleased to again have my office participate in the annual Congressional Art Competition, which rightly recognizes the ingenuity and creativity of young artists in our communities,” said LoBiondo. “With the winning piece on display for visitors to the U.S. Capitol, I encourage South Jersey high school students interested in art to participate in the competition.”

Submissions must be no larger than 28 by 28 inches, and 4 inches in depth, including the frame. Media can be paintings (oil, acrylics, watercolor, etc.); drawings (pastels, colored pencil, pencil, charcoal, ink, markers), collage (must be two-dimensional), prints (lithographs, silkscreen, block prints), mixed media (use of two or more mediums), computer-generated art, and photography. Each submitted piece must be accompanied by release form signed by the artist.

Submissions are due to the congressman’s Mays Landing office by Wednesday, April 30.

The winning submission will be displayed for one year in the tunnel connecting the Cannon House Office Building and the U.S. Capitol, which is part of the main tour route of visitors to Capitol Hill. The second and third place submissions will be displayed in the Congressman’s DC and Mays Landing offices, respectively.
