Photos and descriptions of the Best in BMDCA Art Show (BIS) winner and winning category entries will be printed in the 2021 Spring issue of The Alpenhorn.

The BIS winner will be invited to submit a short (one-page) article, which will include a photo of the BIS artwork. Through this piece, the BIS artist can share information about his/her artistic story and work. In addition, the winner will receive a BIS rosette, which will be presented in person at the 2021 National Specialty (if the member-artist is in attendance).


Participation Rules

  • Member-artists must complete a separate entry form for each submission
  • Eligible artists may enter more than one medium category and up to two entries within the same category.
  • Photos of the work (not the artwork itself) are to be submitted for judging, accompanied by a fully completed entry form
  • Submit up to three photos per entry to enable the jury panel to judge your piece virtually. Please give your photos a file name that includes your last name, medium, and a number if you intend to submit two entries for the same category, e.g., Smith Glass 1 of 2, Smith Glass 2 of 2; instructions for uploading photos will be sent upon receipt of entry
  • Please do not put any identifying information on the photo(s) submitted for the Art Show; judges will not know the identity of the artists entered in the show
  • Finally, so that we can best ensure the integrity of the judging process, please do not place photos of your submitted artwork on Facebook or any other social media platform until after the Art Show has concluded and BMDCA members have received their 2021 Spring Issue of The Alpenhorn
