Artistic Integrity Policy

Work that makes use of photographs, published images, and or other artists/ works, must show creative development beyond duplication.  This may be demonstrated through manipulation of formal qualities, design, and/or concept of the original work.  It is unethical, constitutes plagiarism, and often violates copyright law to simply copy an image (even in another medium) that was created by someone else.  PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT STUDENT WORKS THAT ARE COPIES OF WORKS CREATED BY OTHER ARTISTS.  Any works found to be in violation of this policy will be rejected from the show, even if after the jury process.  TEACHERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ARTISTIC INTEGRITY OF THEIR SUBMISSIONS.
