The USC Graduate School is pleased to announce the annual Deck Our Halls competition. They are looking for the work of students from across USC to display on the walls of their offices in the Student Union building. They are especially interested in data visualizations, paintings, photographs, graphics, textiles, or other contributions that reflect the research pursuits of USC graduate students. Other than copyrighted images, all types of submissions are welcome. The work will be featured for up to one year and will then be returned to the student. Students are welcome to submit more than one piece, but each piece requires a separate application. Students can submit a maximum of four pieces.
The Graduate School will cover the cost of professionally printing and mounting works selected for display. Featured students will be invited to an open house in the spring semester. To be considered, please fill out the application by Monday, December 9, 2019 at 5pm. Proposals will be reviewed and final selections will be made in December. If selected, we will ask you to submit a high resolution jpeg or other image file.
