How Does This Work?
Each fall, entries are judged by panels of highly-qualified professionals who select Gold Key winners who go on to compete at the national level. More than 1,500 students receive national awards each year. Past winners include Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates. Students should create accounts at https://ors.artandwriting.org/Login and upload their works through the national site.
