We Heard You!

Deadline Extended for the
3rd Annual Commitment to Excellence in Art & Sport

New Deadline May 1, 2013               

We have received many notes and phone calls from artists requesting a deadline extension for the competition.  Many of you were affected by "SuperStorm Sandy" and have just been getting life back together.  We are sympathic to your needs and have worked hard to extend the deadline of the competition.  We hope this change makes everything more manageable for you and we look forward to everyone's submissions in the months ahead!

The third annual Commitment to Excellence in Art and Sport: A Fine Art Competition will now remain open for submissions until midnight on May 1, 2013. Entry fees applicable. The competition is open to artists who create fine art (with sport as the primary subject) in the following three categories:

  • Painting/2D
  • Sculpture/3D
  • Photography
Art must depict or evoke sports, celebrating athletics or the athlete as a subject, whether individual or team, competitive or recreational, participant or spectator remembered or studied still life, figurative or landscape.  Up to 30 pieces will be selected by the jurors for exhibit by the Museum at a venue to be announced. The exhibit will open in Fall 2013.


Three $2,500 prizes will be awarded in addition to Medals to the top three entries in each of the competition’s three categories: painting/2D, sculpture/3D and photography.

One $2,500 Germain G. Glidden Best of Show Award honors this portrait artist-national champion squash player who founded the Museum in 1959 and is given by his daughter, Christine D. Glidden, chair of the competition.

Two $2,500 NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Awards will be made by the NCAA Honoring College Athletics and Academic Excellence, one in painting/2D and one in sculpture/3D. Look here to see if your work qualifies for an NCAA award.

Except for entries in photography (which may be digital photography and manipulated), work must be produced by the “hand of the artist” – no computer art. An artist may enter up to five pieces in each category.
