How To Enter The SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest
Welcome to the SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest Entry page! If you are here, we assume you have read through the SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest homepage so that you understand the contest. If you have not yet done so, please do so now.
All art must be submitted to us digitally, following the instructions below.
“I never forgot that you guys were my stepping stone to getting into the wildlife field. I am glad the art contest is still going on so many years later, and that my old art is still being loved. If you need any new little logos or emblems for banners – I would be happy to draw some. Just let me know!” – Leah Klehn
Digital Art Submissions
Digital art includes art that you created on your phone, tablet or computer, as well as traditional art that you photographed or scanned to convert it into digital form. Read on for the basics of preparing and submitting your digital art.
Digitize With Care
If you are digitizing your art, we encourage you to scan it with a real scanner if possible. Otherwise, photograph it with the best camera you can access, and have good lighting. Then crop it so that the final product looks amazing. Do all this with as much care as you put into creating your art. Flash reflections and bad cropping degrade the art, so please digitize with care.
Name Your Files Correctly
Be sure to name your file with your first name, last name and country. Example:
You are allowed (but not required) to include your age as well. Example:
If you are submitting multiple pieces of art, add a number at the end (either 1, 2, or 3, as there is a limit of three entries per artist). Examples:
If you submit a photo of yourself, please name it the same way (being sure to include a unique number at the end of the filename).
We like .jpg files the best. If your art has a transparent background, .png files are great too. You can search online for “convert jpg” to find websites that can convert your image to .jpg for free. Do NOT submit PDF’s or any filetype other than .jpg or .png.
We like high resolution art, though try to keep your art under 2MB so you don’t fill up our server space.
Teachers: Read This
We are no longer able to accept multiple students’ entries in one submission. As such, if you have 20 students, you will need to make 20 entries. This enables us to more easily process the thousands of entries we receive and to send out certificates of participation far more easily. We appreciate your understanding!
If you do have a lot of students, we encourage you to have them submit their own art if they are computer literate. Otherwise, please enlist another teacher or a parent to assist you. Or only submit the best students’ art.
If you created your art in Photoshop, Illustrator or a similar program and have the native file (e.g. .ai or .psd), you don’t need to submit that, but please do mention it in the comments section of the entry form, as we may want it in the future.

“My name is Elaine Hearne and I am an elementary art teacher in Kentucky. I use your contest to teach art principles and of course make students aware of the plight of the frog.”
“My first grade son and several of his friends are rolling out the art contest to their entire school of 645 children. What a great way to get the message out to such a large group of young people. We love what you are doing. I am am so proud of my 1st grade son. His passion and love of frogs and his commitment to spreading the word is inspiring. He had us construct a frog pond in our back yard to do some of his own conservation. This is what learning to love something bigger than yourself is all about. Thank you for your work and time.“
