Artists working in collaboration can: A) work together on a single work, or B) submit artwork that interacts in some way to display the artists’ collaboration. An artist’s collaboration may also be an interpretation of the work of the other artist in a different medium or style.

Artwork created in any medium and dimension is welcome including, but not limited to, watercolor, drawing, painting, pottery, sculpture, glasswork, digital art, pen and ink, photography, multimedia, and writing.
