How To Be Featured in the Student Gallery

Images must be created by students. They may be created by individuals or groups of students. The act of creating an image must involve a computer in some way.

Teachers will submit images for their students. For each issue of Computer Graphics, a teacher may submit up to two images. Each image should be designated either a) K-12, b) art or c) technical.

Image may be submitted electronically or on 35mm slides. For electronic submissions, students will need to prepare two versions of their images. The first version should be a TIFF file that is 300 dpi and approximately five inches long in the longer dimension. In other words, the image should be approximately 1500 pixels in its longer dimension. The second version should be a .gif file containing a thumbnail no bigger than two inches at 72 dpi on its longest side (144 pixels long). Instructions and forms for electronic submission are located at

Any student whose work is featured in Computer Graphics will receive a copy of the issue in which his or her work appears. In addition, both student and teacher will receive a small but much coveted prize. For additional information about this feature, visit the website or contact one of the jurors.
