Not all entries will be chosen for Spring Show.

Large-scale, multi-component projects will be favored.

Projects with working websites and prototypes will be favored.

Creators of projects selected for inclusion in the Spring Show will be notified by the email included in the submission form.

Three winners will be chosen from Spring Show entrants: Undergraduate winner (chosen from students in BFA, BFA2, and AA programs), Graduate winner (chosen from students in the MA or MFA program), and WNM Best in Show (chosen from all entries).


How many projects can I submit?

You may submit up to 3 separate projects. If you need to resubmit a project, you should email hcline@academyart.edu with the subject line "SpringShow Resubmit"

Can a group project be submitted?

Yes! There is a place in the form to include those additional student names.

Would a group project count as one of my three projects that I can submit?

If the student who submits that project wants to also submit three other projects, please notify the department at newmedia@academyart.edu to get a project cap exception.

My instructor says he/she submitted my work for Spring Show. Do I need to do anything?

Yes. Students must fill out the submission form for each project submitted. Any work recommended to WNM in any other form will not be considered.

Can I submit work from a non-WNM class?

Students can submit projects created in a WNM class from April 7, 2018 through April 5, 2019.

Who picks the work to be included in Spring Show?

Once the submission deadline passes, work will be collected and blindly adjudicated by the WNM Directors and Faculty.
