Anyone can participate, regardless of art skill, age, or attendance at the Congress. This is an activity you can share with your children, even if you haven’t taught them go (yet!). Consider sharing with your go club or your students.

To participate in the contest portion of Picture a Go Player, submit your artwork to Samantha Fede by 11:59pm PDT on Friday, July 23rd. We will review submissions and choose two winners: 1) an overall winner and 2) a youth winner (artist under 18). We will also release a commemorative t-shirt that will be sold on the 2021 e-Go congress merchandise page, featuring a winning design. Winners will also receive a free commemorative t-shirt. All entries* will be displayed in a gallery on the AGA website and winners will be recognized in the closing ceremony and the e-journal***.

With your submission, please include the following information:
Name: [Not required; you may submit anonymously or may provide a pseudonym / handle]
Age of Artist:
Explanation: [Not required; you may give a brief of your submission and/or of what being a go player means to you. Portions of this explanation may be excerpted in the display or recognition of entries. If you would like to provide an explanation but do not want it publicly excerpted, please state that. You may also note if you would not like your artwork to be considered for the contest, and would just like it to be displayed in the virtual art gallery.]

*An entry other than one of the two winners may be selected for printing on the t-shirt based on suitability for printing. If so, the artist of that submission would also be considered a “winner” and recognized accordingly. If no entry is suitable, or due to unanticipated logistics issues, the AGA may elect not to print a commemorative Picture a Go Player t-shirt.

**Entries will be reviewed prior to posting; AGA officials may decide not to post an entry in the public gallery for any reason, such as containing offensive or copywrited content.

***Please note that by submitting your art to the Picture a Go Player contest, you are authorizing the American Go Association to use your submission, with attribution, for marketing, publicity, merchandise, communications, and other related purposes; for example, a non-winning entry may be highlighted in the e-journal. No compensation will be provided for such future use.

Congratulations to our winning entries!
