Robot Rally Art Contest Guidelines

Official Rules

Theme for 2020: Robots for home use

Robotics isn’t just for left-brained linear, logical thinkers. Sure, you need to have some engineering know-how to tinker with all those moving parts. But there is also a need for good design. You can’t just have wires hanging around. You need to encase them somewhere and make it easy for the programming to function and interact with humans. The LH Art Gallery may be your stepping stone to a great robotic design as well as a venue to express your love-hate relationship with robots.

Below are the rules of the Robot Rally contest:

  • Entries may be in digital, oils, watercolors, inks, photography or mixed media. They can be 2-D or 3-D. You can make a painting, a drawing, a sculpture made of paper and cardboard, a digital image, etc.   All artworks must be easily transportable.
  • All 2-D entries should be framed and ready for hanging.
  • All artwork must be original with a focus on the robotic theme of the year.
